bfi Brings Holiday Cheer with Claus Project

During this season of giving, bfi and its employees participated in the Clause Project run by HomeFront, and sponsored gifts for 45 children! Since its inception 25 years ago, HomeFront has worked to break the cycle of poverty and end homelessness in Central New Jersey.

The Claus Project provides holiday gifts for deserving children who would otherwise go without presents. The collected gifts are distributed anonymously to working parents to give to their children for the holidays.

bfi has proudly participated in this charity event for over 10 years and thanks our bfi “elf” Margaret Castoria for all of her hard work and coordination to make this possible.

Using the children's wish list, bfi employees purchased scooters, skateboards, helmets, learning toys, cars and trucks, dolls, games and accessories, blue tooth speakers, headphones and cd players, clothes, Teddy Bears, gift cards, Barbie dolls, and more.
