Christmas Wishes Come True for the German Christmas Market of New Jersey and Charities in Sussex County!
In December, we celebrated the success of our 20th Anniversary Market by giving back a record amount of $75,000 to the local charities of Sussex County!
As a non-profit organization, the German Christmas Market of New Jersey operates for the purpose of creating a Sussex County community event celebrating the Christmas Holiday and raising funds to distribute back into the community. The recipient charities provide vital services to those in need and often overlooked in our neighborhoods - we commend all of them for their efforts. We also support local educational programs that continue the German cultural heritage, language and culinary arts. These groups have provided delightful entertainment and delicious Linzer Tarts at the Market for years and we thank you!
These are the 24 charities receiving grants for the 2021 German Christmas Market event are:
- Birth Haven
