City of Trenton Sponsors Three Kings Day Event

TRENTON, NJ –The City of Trenton sponsored its annual Three Kings Day event on the front steps of City Hall along East State Street; toys were distributed to children and parents as they traveled back home from school.

The City of Trenton typically sponsors the annual Three Kings Day event with the Latino Merchants Association; this year, the Department of Recreation, Natural Resources & Culture sponsored the event with the Department of Fire & Emergency Services.

In many Latinx families, Three King’s Day is celebrated as the culmination of the holiday season where additional gift-giving is the norm. Director Maria Richardson affirmed, “It’s so great to see kids smiling and laughing when they received gifts. We believe that it is important to celebrate different cultures and our diversity."

Importantly, Amazon, Walmart, and the United States Marine Corps Reserve (Toys for Tots) donated the presents for the event. Since the gift exchange resulted from this important collaboration, no expenditures were required by the City of Trenton.

Mayor W. Reed Gusciora stated, “In Trenton, community matters: We look out for one another. Every child in the Capital City deserves to have gifts around the holiday season; no family should have to decide between heating their house and buying presents for their children. We’re glad to be making a difference in the lives of city youth.”
