Local Nonprofits Need Help to Help Homeless Families

Local nonprofits need your help in bringing holiday cheer to local homeless families.

Friends of F.I.T., along with the Northboro Junior Woman's CLub, are hosting their annual holiday party for homeless families located in Northborough, Westborough and Marlboro. Guests will enjoy games, crafts, dinner and of course a visit from Santa.

All children will recieve gifts from Santa along with goody bags filled with sweets, new socks and underwear and items such as coloring books and card games. Adults will also recieve some holiday cheer as they will recieve gift bags with personal hygiene items as well as some special holiday treats.

But, we need your help!

We are in need of:

New unwrapped toys for boys & girls ages 2-12

Gift Cards for teens to Walmart, Target, Regal Cinemas, Mc'Donalds, Etc.

Gift cards for the moms & dads to help with the upcoming holidays - Target Walmart, Hannafords, dollar tree, Papa Gino's etc.

We are also  looking for a group or individual who would be willing to assist with putting together gift bags for dads

All items are needed by Dec. 7.

Please consider helping to bring the joys and cheer of the holiday's to local homeless families. If you are able to help please contact Julie at Friendsoffit@aol.com or call 508-709-5519
