Holiday Giving


Thank you for helping us create special holiday memories for the families we serve!

Child & Family’s Holiday Giving Program provides children, families and elders the traditional holiday trimmings of a shared meal and gifts exchanged that many of us take for granted. During designated drop off days the hallways of our Community Center are filled to the brim with donations of food, gift cards, toys, clothing, cash and other gifts. We are grateful for the contributions from school groups, clubs, organizations, businesses, individuals and some of our own employees.

Thanksgiving Basket Program

You provide a Thanksgiving basket basket for a family of 4 people of non-perishable food items and a supermarket gift certificate (Shaw’s or Stop & Shop) to purchase a turkey and other perishable items.  Because of the need for baskets, we encourage you to provide multiple baskets if you are able. If you are not in the position to assemble a basket we welcome the donation of grocery gift cards and/or cash.

Adopt-A-Family Program

IMPORTANT UPDATE (Dec. 10, 2018): The area of greatest need for Adopt-A-Family is generic, unwrapped new gifts and gift certificates. We are no longer matching donors with specific/assigned families & children. To Sign-Up to help, please click the below link to the “Sign-Up Form.”

You provide toys and gifts for children. In many cases, these will be the only holiday gifts they receive.  We provide you with a “wish list” and you shop for the child/children with whom you are matched. We also gladly accept generic unwrapped gifts, gift certificates (e.g. Walmart, TJMaxx, etc.) or monetary donations.

Your support creates special holiday memories for those most in need.

Thank you!
