The companies, churches, and groups that donated included: Becton Regional High School; Bergen County Bar Association; Bergen County Central Trades and Labor Council; Brown & Caldwell; Galilee United Methodist Church; Hackensack High School; HUMC Pediatric ER; Metropolitan Center; National Association of Letter Carriers Bergen County Merged Branch 425; Parisian Beauty Academy; Zumiez Foundation. Also donated were homemade knitted hats from Kathy Stadlin as well as toy and coat donations from other private donors such as Demi Pescatore.
