Rozzi’s office provides Christmas presents for more than 300 area children

READING, Dec. 9 – State Rep. Mark Rozzi’s annual Christmas Gift Giving event concluded this week with more than 100 local families adopted for the holiday season.

Rozzi’s office holds this donation drive every year, where participants choose to support a local family in need. Sponsors buy items on the family’s wish list, wrap and label the presents so that they are ready to be put under the tree by Christmas morning.

The presents are currently filling up Rozzi’s district office, located at 4933 Kutztown Road in Temple. Media are invited to visit, take photos and ask any questions about the program.

“This year, I’m proud to say that we were able to provide gifts for 114 families, amounting to a total of 312 children,” Rozzi said. “I cannot thank the generous participants enough. Ensuring that every local kid has a gift to unwrap this holiday season will help make their day special.”

Rozzi’s office receives hundreds of detailed wish lists from local families, schools and nonprofits every year. Rozzi and his staff coordinate connecting families with sponsors to obtain all the specific items on their lists, creating happy holidays for all throughout the 126th Legislative District.

“Times are tough for so many people, and the holidays can exacerbate financial struggles. My office is happy to help relieve this pressure for families in need and replace financial worries with happy memories, instead,” Rozzi said.
