Help fulfill families’ Winter Wishes

Southborough Youth & Family Services (and their friends) are again asking residents (who can afford to) to give a boost to families in town experiencing financial anxiety during a tough time of year.

Donations submitted by December 3rd* to the Friends of the Youth Commission will be used to support SYFS’ Winter Wishes program (formerly known as the Holiday Giving Program.) 

In the past, in addition to seeking financial donations, SYFS worked with community groups to solicit holiday gifts for member families. They shifted to only receiving financial donations so they can empower parents to shop for their own children. (In my mind, parents are also better able to select gifts their kids want and need, which means more joy all around.)

Residents/families who qualified for the program will receive gift cards through SYFS.

Donations to the 501(c)3 are tax deductible. To support Winter Wishes, you can pay:

  • via Vemmo (@FriendsSYC or using QR code in flyer) or
  • mail checks payable to FSYC to: Kathy Cook, The Fusion Group 132 Turnpike Rd., Suite 250 Southborough, MA 01772. (They will also accept gift cards.)

The program recently received a bit of a boost thanks to the Celtics ticket raffle benefitting Friends of Southborough Youth Commission. They tell me they were able to raise $2,150.

(The winner was a huge Celtics fan who was very excited to win the tickets to Friday’s game. I’m sure the Celtics win over the Nets made the outing even sweeter for Bonnie Fife and her guests.)

To keep up on future FSYC fundraisers and news, follow them on Facebook here.

*Donations received after December 3rd will support other community needs, like SYFS’ Summer Camperships.
