SOUTH BRUNSWICK – Monmouth Mobile Home Park hosts an annual holiday shopping spree for local students from South Brunswick schools. This year, Monmouth Mobile Home Park is instead treating 25 lucky children to an online shopping spree.
“This year, due to COVID-19, we decided to do the shopping spree online so that we could be as safe as possible. We weren’t about to let our local kids down. It was important for us to find a way to bring some joy to children in need,” Dan Mandell, manager of Monmouth Mobile Home Park, said in a prepared statement. “This year has been difficult for so many families and especially during the holidays it can be tough. We are happy to help.”
The annual event lets one child and one parent loose in the store, giving them approximately an hour to pick out whatever they want. Each child gets $150 to spend, according to the statement.
“It is really something amazing to watch as the kids are so thankful and won’t just pick out gifts for themselves but will often buy gifts for other family members. Even though we can’t be together in person this year, I know the kids will have a blast shopping online,” Mandell said in the statement.
The staff at Monmouth Mobile Home Park is fully immersed in community life and are active members in township activities, offering different events, activities and gatherings so everyone can be included, according to the statement. This past summer, Monmouth Mobile Home Park created a garden to help provide nutritious food for their residents who were struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic. They also hosted an outdoor COVID friendly fall festival at a local farm and are in the process of building little free libraries so that the children at the Park have access to books. Other events they have hosted include a Trenton Thunder baseball game outing, a tree lighting, menorah lighting, annual resident holiday party, Easter egg hunt, end of summer ice cream truck and a community yard sale.
Monmouth Mobile Home Park has been in business for more than 50 years. Its goal is to connect residents together as a community and strive to preserve that happiness throughout their residency.
