The Holly City Family Success Center is a community-based family-centered organization that offers a multitude of services to children and families in our community. Two years ago Diane Alcantara, Millville Womans Club (MWC) member, suggested that the Club spread the joy of the holiday season in the form of gift bags for children.

The Family Success Center was selected as the beneficiary to thank for the services it provides. The project went so well it was repeated last year and again this year. MWC members donated bags containing toys, books, games, coloring books and crayons, puzzles, gloves and more for the children’s Christmas party. On December 13, Donna Pio and Debbi Permito joined Diane to deliver over 50 gift bags to Raquel Matis at the Success Center.
