On Saturday, December 5, The Montclair Multiracial Adoptive Families group will present a Multicultural Winter Festival for all to enjoy.
There will be music performances, delicious food from local restaurants, a bunch of children’s activities, a Barefoot Books Montclair booth, fair trade vendors, a professional photographer offering family portraits and so much more. In addition to offering Baristaville a wonderfully fun afternoon, the festival’s real mission is to benefit The Heart Gallery of New Jersey, a non-profit organization that helps raise awareness about foster children awaiting permanent homes. The First Congregational Church of Montclair is generously offering the space for the festival, the musicians are performing for free and the food vendors are donating food or giving a percentage to this cause.
You don’t have to wait until the festival to help. Go to Aunt Jean’s Toys & Treats before December 5, and purchase a holiday gift for a foster child. Leave your gift at the store and all the gifts will be given out to the children for the holidays. In addition, Aunt Jean’s will generously donate 10% of all foster children gifts to The Heart Gallery of NJ.
