The Princeton Airport Santa Fly In event has been discontinued since 2020 for safety reasons. However, Princeton Airport will continue to serve as a Gift Donation Center for the Mercer County Board of Social Services, as well as a Food Donation Center for the FoodBank Network of Somerset County. Unwrapped gifts and canned or boxed food are accepted in the lobby of the Princeton Airport.
Gift collection begins the day after Thanksgiving at 8:00 A.M. and ends on Sunday, December 18th enabling county workers to arrange the best matches for the needy. The gifts can be deposited in the “chimneys” in the lobby of the airport between 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M.
