The Bar Method of Summit Supports 2012 Santa Claus Shop

The Bar Method of Summit supports 2012 Santa Claus Shop

The Bar Method of Summit, 86 Summit Ave., 2nd floor, Summit, owned by Jen Hedrick and Angie Comiteau, graciously offered to host a Bar Method class on Tuesday, Nov. 27 at 1:30 p.m., with 100 percent of the proceeds donated to the Santa Claus Shop.  

The offer was so well received by the community that two classes were held at 1:30 and taught by both Jen and Angie.  In addition to 100 percent of the class proceeds donated to Santa Claus Shop, The Bar Method has generously offered to donate 10 percent of all general sales on Nov. 27 to Santa Claus Shop.  The Santa Claus Shop chairwomen thank The Bar Method for their generosity and support!

The Santa Claus Shop serves more than 500 low-income families and senior citizens from Summit, New Providence and Berkeley Heights, who are referred by local social service agents. Santa Claus Shop guests personally select a household item, new clothing for each member of their immediate families and a new toy and book for each child. Gift wrapping is done on the premises by local volunteers.

This annual event operates solely on the monetary donations from area residents, local organizations and businesses.  Donations are accepted throughout the year.  With the monetary donations from area residents, local organizations and businesses, the Santa Claus Shop can purchase the gifts that allow less fortunate neighbors to experience the joy of holiday giving without financial burden.

The 2012 Santa Claus Shop is chaired by Summit residents, Victoria Carrigan, Amy D’Andrea, Key Michel and Katrina Walsh and co-chaired by Stacie Collins, Carrie Fallon, Beth Little and Jenna Smith.

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the tradition of the Santa Claus Shop is more important than ever as we ask for your help to spread some holiday cheer to those in need.   To keep the holiday spirit alive for those in the community, the Santa Claus Shop chairwomen ask that your tax-deductible contribution be made payable to SHIP, with Santa Claus Shop noted on the check’s memo line, and mailed to:

Santa Claus Shop
P.O. Box 119
Summit, NJ 07901
