December 24th. Every year Santa has scheduled a stop at the Princeton Airport to distribute gifts for area children. Airport Manager, Kenneth Nierenberg, has confirmed Santa’s arrival time to be 11:00 A.M.
If you wish to have your children participate in the event, please bring a wrapped gift for each child with the name in large print to the lobby of the airport. If you have several children, wrap the gifts in the same paper and tie them together to expedite the distribution. Gifts should be not larger than 12" to accommodate Santa.
On the day of the event adults are advised to bring the children prior to 11:00 A.M. and wait in the maintenance hangar.
You must also bring an equal number of unwrapped gifts for NEEDY children. In the lobby there will be two chimneys to receive the respective gifts. Get your gifts in early, as Santa dispenses them in the order we receive them. (Collection starts Nov. 26th until Dec. 16)
These gifts are being collected and distributed through the Mercer County Board of Social Services. Although toys are a common donation, items such as scarves, mittens, and other articles of clothing are welcome.
The airport has set a deadline for the collection of both the gifts for area children and the needy of December 16th in order to enable county workers to arrange for the best matches for the needy. The gifts can be deposited in the "chimneys" in the lobby at the airport between the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 6:00 P.M. In fairness to all, Santa will distribute the gifts in the order in which they are received at the airport. Usually the distribution of the gifts is completed by 1:00 P.M. when Santa will continue his journey.
There is no charge for the event.
