YWCA Princeton’s sincerely thanks all those who helped spread holiday cheer this year through the annual St. Nichola’s Project. This year, the event enabled 21 families of our Young Wonders CDC create the magic of Christmas for their children. A special thank you to Princeton resident and long-time YWCA supporter Jill Jachera for organizing this event and to all the donors who supported this beautiful cause!
The St. Nicholas Project was founded in 2000 by Ms. Jachera, who saw the need to help families in Princeton. The project provides holiday presents to help local families in need. Gifts were donated by community members, individuals, families and businesses.The project, originally called the ‘YWCA Adopt-a-Family’, was renamed after its first year in memory of Ms. Jachera’s nephew Nichols Nutile, who was killed in an automobile accident in 2001. She continues to lead the drive each year encouraging businesses and individuals to join her effort to enrich the lives of local families and strengthen our community.
