Friends of FIT are asking for Southborough’s help this holiday season.

The Salvation Army and Friends of F.I.T. have partnered up to help raise funds for families placed in local motels for shelter (Families in Transition).

Volunteers are needed for two-hour time slots from now until Dec. 24. You can sign up online to ring the bell outside a local supermarket.

If two hours seems long to you, don’t worry.  Groups are welcome to do share/split shifts. And organizers encourage you to use your holiday spirit and creativity.

So, wear silly Christmas hats and sing carols if you want. It won’t just help draw attention, it will help time fly.

Some organizations from our community have already pledged support, including churches and Fay school, according to Dru Lindgren, the Marlborough coordinator for F.I.T.

Even Senator Jamie Eldridge is taking a two hour shift at bell ringing. He will be outside of Price Chopper in Marlborough on Nov. 26  from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

This year’s Marlborough area Kettle Drive stations include:

  • Price Chopper at 240 East Main Street (Rte. 20) in Marlborough
  • Market Basket in Highland Commons mall on Rte. 62 in Hudson
  • Stop & Shop on Rte. 85 in Hudson near the I-290 Connector
  • Walmart  on Rte. 85 in Hudson near the I-290 Connector
