Holiday Gift collection drives in Southborough (SYFS donations due today!) (Updated)

I’m running my annual roundup of holiday collection drives in town. (Normally, I’d post this tomorrow for Giving Tuesday, but it includes one that wraps up today.)

SYFS Holiday Giving Program – closes today

The annual program supports Southborough families in need over the holidays. This year’s deadline is Monday, November 30th.

If you can’t get them a gift card in time, an online donation is another option. Click here for a reminder of all the options and details.

Project Just Because (through the Southborough Fire Department)

The Southborough Fire Department is again collecting gifts for this Hopkinton based charity.

Please try to get new, unwrapped donations in by Wednesday, December 16. The Fire Department is always open, so drop off any time in the vestibule at 32 Cordaville Road.

Toys for TotsToys for Tots (three drop off spots in town)

Three organizations in town are running their annual collection for the cause.

Since 1947, Marines have been collecting gifts for underprivileged children. Gifts can be for ages anywhere from 1-16 years old.

Drop off your new, unwrapped gift donations soon at one of these locations:

Planners for Presents

Last month, I posted about the change this year to the annual Pretzels for Presents fundraiser. It’s not actually a collection drive. But, they will be using all proceeds from the sale of 2021 decorative planners to donate presents to Shriner’s Hospital patients. For a reminder of those details, click here.

Updated (11/30/11:59 am): The Senior Center asked me to let readers know that they can call to arrange another time if they can’t make Friday’s event.

Updated (11/30/20 1:06 pm): I was initially missing Southborough Veterinary Hospital’s drop off info.
