Family Resource Associates (FRA) fulfills wishes of 54 local families
FRA celebrates 20 years of bringing Santa to Families in Monmouth County.

"Our therapists know these families so well and we're able to provide gift recommendations based on each family's needs," said Levine. "Thanks to one generous donor, FRA typically provides gifts such as toys, clothes, food and living essentials/basic needs. We were happy to lend a helping hand in whatever capacity to ensure that these families have a memorable Christmas."
FRA enlists the help of Monmouth Reform Temple and others to shop, purchase and organize gifts, which have all been funded through an anonymous donor in Monmouth County. Volunteers wrap all the gifts and staff prep them for delivery in Santa's sleigh (the FRA van). On Christmas Eve, Nancy Phalanukorn, FRA Executive Director, and her son (dressed up as Santa) will deliver gifts to some of the families on Santa's list.
"This really is a wonderful time at FRA," said Levine. "And we hope to continue our tradition of fulfilling the Christmas wishes of our FRA families for many more years to come."
