This is a friendly reminder that the time to donate to Southborough Youth & Family Services’ Holiday Giving Program is now. 

The program is scheduled to end on November 30th, earlier than usual.

SYFS’ early push is prompted by two big challenges caused by the pandemic.

One is that some people may feel less safe hitting the stores during busy days of the holiday shopping season. That’s why SYFS is looking to collect and distribute gift cards early. (That will also enable families to order items that require time for shipping.)

The second is that the agency worries that more families may be in need of the service while fewer families feel able to support the drive with their traditional generosity.

Holiday Giving Program flyerPayments can be made to Friends of the Southborough Youth Commission with “Holiday Giving” in the memo/note field. Donate online via PayPal or by mailing/dropping off a check care of Southborough Youth & Family Services.

You can mail your check or gift cards care of Southborough Youth & Family Services, 17 Common Street, Southborough, MA 01772.

Examples of welcome gift cards are Target, Walmart, Amazon, Trader Joes, Stop & Shop, Old Navy, CVS, Price Choppers, Marshalls, Walgreens, Michaels, Barnes & Nobles. Other gift cards are also welcome.
