The Junior Women's Club of Cedar Grove will be helping out several charities this holiday season by collecting donations during its annual Breakfast with Santa on Dec. 8.
This year, Breakfast with Santa will be co-sponsored by the Cedar Grove Juniors and the Cedar Grove Recreation Department. Donations will be collected for the Pajama Program and The Seeing Eye charities.
The event will be held on Saturday Dec. 8 with seatings beginning at 8:30 a.m. and again at 10 a.m. at the Cedar Grove High School Cafeteria, located at 90 Rugby Road.
The Juniors will also be collecting new pajamas, books and financial donations for the Pajama Program, which provides pajamas and books for children in need.
“The Pajama Program provides comfort and love in the way of new pajamas and new books to children-in-need, many waiting and hoping to be adopted,” the organization said in a written statement.
“Many of these children have been abused, neglected or abandoned, and have never enjoyed the simple comfort of having a mother or father tuck them at bedtime with warm, clean pajamas and a bedtime story,” they said.
The Cedar Grove Juniors will be collecting pajamas in all sizes but are especially looking for new pajamas in teen sizes. Items should be brought to the Breakfast with Santa event.
“We are also collecting donations for our sponsored charity, The Seeing Eye. They are in need of various dog supplies,” the Cedar Grove Junior Women's Club said. “We are also collecting change for the Pennies for Puppies program.”

The Juniors are reminding residents to bring their own cameras for pictures with Santa. Tickets for children ages one through nine cost $5 and tickets for adults are $7.
Breakfast includes bagels, donuts, muffins, juice, coffee, tea, a craft station, a small gift for each child and raffle prizes.
“Tickets can be purchased at the Recreation Department located on the 2nd floor of the Municipal Building (239-1410),” the Juniors Said. “You may pay by check or money order made payable to the 'Junior Women’s Club of Cedar Grove.' Cash will not be accepted.”
