Kidsgiving 2021

Our 4th Annual Kidsgiving Event will be Sunday, December 5th at Code Ninjas Hillsborough-Montgomery! We will again have a drive-by event with holiday music, goodies, special guests, and of course our charity collection. This year we’ll again be supporting Steps-Together with donations of cash, gift cards, and new unwrapped gifts. Additionally, we will be collecting unexpired new non-perishable food items for the Montgomery and Hillsborough Food Pantries.

What is Kidsgiving?

In previous years, KidsGiving has been a free community event where kids can bring unwrapped gifts to wrap and place under the holiday tree for local kids in need. This year with COVID in play, we will still plan to do a drive-by event to support our local charities and still make this a fun event for our younger generation.  Additionally, we will have a virtual event for sign up which will include holiday cooking, games, and much more.

This year, we will be accepting gift cards, physical gifts from the wishlist, any unused/brand new toys, and cash donations. All net proceeds from the event will support Steps-Together, a local 501c3 that benefits Somerset County families facing medical crises, like childhood cancer. All food items will be donated to the Montgomery and Hillsborough food pantries.

Many local businesses are also joining us in this mission to spread holiday cheer and give back to our communities. Please visit our Facebook Page to see our partnering businesses and support them in return.
