Holiday Gift collection drives in Southborough

In honor of Giving Tuesday, I’m running my annual roundup of holiday collection drives in town.

If you are donating gifts to any of the below drives, they must be new and unwrapped.

Winter Wishes

(This isn’t strictly about holiday gifts – but is certainly how some families will look to use at least some of the the support.)
