Camden Looks After Friendless Children

Philadelphia Inquirer – January 4, 1897

Santa Visits Them Despite War, Many Churches Hold Christmas Services

Camden’s generous spirited citizens have responded to the appeal that was made by the Camden Home for Friendless Children, whose youthful inmates were threatened with having a very lean sort of a visit from Santa Claus. There were so many activities in connection with the war that the little folks were threatened with being forgotten, but when their needs were made known the good-hearted folks began pouring in all manner of toys, good things to eat and other essentials for the season so that the little boys and girls, most of whom are orphans, will likely enjoy Christmas-tide as well as their more fortunate brothers and sisters who have homes and parents and plenty of love.
