If you are in Newtown this Sunday, please remember those who are helped by the Red Cross:
State Rep. Steven J. Santarsiero, D-Bucks, will be hosting an open house for the holiday season during the Newtown Santa Parade from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 6 at his district office located at 277 North Sycamore Street in Newtown Township.
All residents are invited to stop in and meet Santarsiero and his staff, and learn more about state programs and the services his office provides. There will also be cookie decorating activities for children and hot chocolate for all visitors.
"I look forward to meeting as many of my constituents as possible as they are out in the community celebrating the Santa Parade," Santarsiero said. "This is also a great opportunity to help those in need right here in our own community."
As part of the open house, Santarsiero will collect supplies for the Lower Bucks Red Cross shelter, which is the only 24-hour homeless shelter in Bucks County and serves more than 350 people every year. The Red Cross shelter is in need of the following donations:
· Paper towels, napkins
· Gently used towels and sheets
· Size 5/6 diapers
· "sippy" cups for children
· 55-gallon trash bags, kitchen trash bags
· Gas gift cards of any denomination
· Checks made out to the American Red Cross Lower Bucks County Chapter
