As I mentioned earlier, today is Giving Tuesday. Of course, it’s just one day in a season of giving. So here’s a friendly reminder that, when you are out shopping for loved ones, you might want to throw an extra toy or gift card in your cart.

Here’s a list of the gift drive collections going on in or through our town.

If you have a collection drive not listed below, you can post a comment to let readers know.
The Southborough Fire Department is again collecting toys for this Hopkinton charity.  Project Just Because distributes the toys to families in Worcester County. Toys will be individually selected for a child and then delivered to the home in time for Christmas.

I’ve already posted about SYFS’ Holiday Giving Program for Southborough families in need this season.

Their deadline for gift card donations is December 9th. For details, read the dedicated post here.

Project Just Because

Gifts should be new and unwrapped. Requested items include:

  • Board Games for ages 10+,

  • Stuffed Animals
  • Winter Jackets – All Sizes
  • Gift cards for warm clothing
  • Warm hats and gloves for all ages
  • Twin blankets
  • Toys for all ages

Please try to get donations in by Sunday, December 18. The Fire Department is always open, so drop them by any time.
