South Orange Hot Cocoa Stand Raises Funds for Hungry Kids


Charlie (age 6) and Beatrix (age 3) Marotta of South Orange set-up a hot chocolate stand, complete with whip cream and marshmallows, and donated the proceeds to Rent Party’s BackPack Pals program.

Rent Party is a monthly live music event in Maplewood. Their BackPack Pals program provides a weekend’s worth of nutritious food to almost 100 children in the South Orange-Maplewood School District. For more information about Rent Party, visit
