HOLIDAY CARNIVAL (FOUNDING SPONSOR)

This is Joi’s Angels flagship community event.  The annual carnival has outgrown its former location and is now held at Essex County College.  Last year, over 4,000 children received free gift and toys.  All families and guests receive a free holiday meal.  We also offer an open-air toiletry market where individuals and families can shop as if they were in a retail store.  It is stocked with thousands of personal care items and other hygiene products.  There is a separate open-air baby needs store for mothers, infants and children.  All guests have access to bags of healthy produce and food items, and a wide assortment of new and gently used outerwear for winter. We anticipate that this event will only grow in the coming years.
