Santa will be given some help this year from the Flemington Girl Scouts.
From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 21, Santa and his Christmas horses will hold a fundraiser at the Team Velvet Inc. facility, Journeys End Farm, 79 Old Clinton Road, Flemington, N.J., to support the equine mental health therapy services provided for traumatized children.
The Girl Scouts wanted to help Santa and have decided to collect wet cat food to donate to Team Velvet Inc. barn cats Misty and Sparkle, who maintain a mouse-free barn. The Scouts will make their gift presentation to Santa as part of the event.
Team Velvet, Inc. is a nonprofit organization providing non-mounted equine mental health services for children aged 5 through 12 who have experienced trauma. These services are provided by a licensed psychologist at no cost to the families.
The Scouts will be collecting cans of wet food until Nov. 15. To arrange for pickup or drop-off in the Flemington area or for more information, e-mail GSTroop82304@gmail.com.
