Middletown Crossing Guard Spreads Holiday Cheer

Crossing Guard Santa
Middletown crossing guard Kenneth Barker greets residents at Red Hill Road & Kings Highway during the school week and brings some extra joy when he dresses up as Santa. Barker continued to spread holiday cheer this month when he delivered toys to pediatric cancer hospitals across NJ on behalf of the David's Touch Foundation. This year he helped deliver over 3000 toys! Bringing a smile to others’ faces, especially when times are tough, is really what Christmas spirit is all about. We thank him for being a shining member of our community!
