Vendors will display their holiday gifts products – including many handcrafted items – from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. A free lunch also will be served to the first 300 senior and disabled that register. Transportation will be available through the specialized transit system operated by the County Office on Aging.
The shopping event is free of charge, and members of the general public are also invited, but they will not be able to have lunch there.
“Everyone wants to feel the joy of giving during the holiday season,” said Freeholder Bruce Bobbitt, who chairs the Health and Human Services committee. “Why not provide the opportunity right here in Salem County to those who find it difficult to shop at the mall.”
The Salem County Office on Aging – which provides comprehensive services as the Office of Aging and Disability Resource Connection – is able to present this event through partnering with Pennsville National Bank.
“Whether you have $3 to spend or $50 set aside for holiday shopping, you will be able to find the perfect gift for that special someone, and this is such an easy way to shop, made even more convenient with a lunch and door-to-door transportation” said Freeholder Director Julie Acton.
Transportation is available free of charge during the day to eligible Salem County residents wanting to attend the event. To find out if you qualify for transportation or if you want to register for a ride, call the ADRC/Office on Aging between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm at 856-339-8622 by December 4, 2013. You must make a lunch reservation, by calling the same number by December 4th.
