I’ve put together a list of the gift drive collections that community organizations have asked me to promote this holiday season.
If you have a collection drive not listed below, please post a comment or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Project Just Because
The Southborough Fire Department is collecting toys for this Hopkinton charity. These toys will be individually selected for a child and then delivered to the home in time for Christmas. They hope to deliver the toys by December 19 (but will continue collecting toys until Christmas.)
You can drop off a donation at the station.
SYFS Holiday Giving Program
Southborough Youth and Family Services is in the midst of their annual gift card program. Each holiday season, donations provide necessities and gifts for families who are in a crisis.
When life is bleak, the holidays can be impossibly difficult. In the past, through the understanding compassion and generosity of townspeople, we have been able to keep heat on in some homes by distributing oil coupons. We have ensured that children would have winter jackets, snow-pants, and boots. Underwear and P.J’s were replenished and grocery coupons helped to put food in bare cabinets. We have made an effort also to provide a few special gifts that will thrill the child who opens them.
