SYFS Holiday Giving: Seeking and offering help

Every year, Southborough Youth & Family Services coordinates a Holiday Giving Program to support residents in need. This year, SYFS is holding the collection drive early.

This year, the program has two big challenges prompting the early push.

One is a pandemic that may make some people 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 enable families to order items that require time for shipping.)

In addition, many families that traditionally generously supported the program may have trouble affording that this year.

For those who want to apply for assistance, or have questions, please call Christina at 508-481-5676 or email

For those of you who would like to support the effort, please donate by November 30th.
