Quota Club of Northampton is again sponsoring Judy’s Little Santa Shop at East Allen Township Fire Company, 5344 Nor-Bath Blvd. Last year, more than 100 children from the food bank were able to “shop” for Christmas gifts for their families and spend some time with Santa and Mickey Mouse.

This year’s event will be held Dec. 2 at the food bank, 1601 Canal St.

In order to make this day special for the children, Quota Club is asking for Christmas gift donations suitable for men, women and children. Contact club President Kelly Frantz at 610-262-7826 for details.
