Railmen for Children was founded almost 30 years ago by a group of NJ Transit conductors and engineers who donated spare change to less fortunate children at Christmastime.
Every year, Railmen for Children invites local schools and organizations consisting of less fortunate and handicapped children on a Santa train.
Teachers ask the children to write Christmas wish lists to Santa and those letters are delivered to Railmen for Children. Railmen for Children does everything in its power to grant the wishes, and Santa delivers the gifts on the train ride. For some of these kids, this is the only Christmas present they receive.
All are provided a meal, box lunch for the children and they have a courtesy car with food for all the teachers, aids, volunteers and guests.
The preparation for the train ride starts months in advance including the planning with the NJT, who donate all the resources for the train ride (crew, equipment).
For every vehicle that visits our shop for an oil change in July, RAILMEN FOR CHILDREN will receive $5.
