Billerica shares their extras

John Pellegrino and the Billerica fire stations collected toys for Christmas for children in need in Billerica. After they had filled all the need in their town they contacted Lori and asked if she could use the extras for our clients. Lori said absolutely and was given 4 bags of gifts including a bag from donor Brian Buck who was dropping off his donation. We are grateful for the community partnership we have with so many towns and organizations that share their surplus with us. All our clients benefit from the generosity.

Caseworkers serve their community

During this extraordinary year of COVID-19, caseworkers wait in line, 6′ apart, with masks on, in order to pick out toys for their clients a few days before Christmas. Everything about this year has been different, but one thing that remained the same is the commitment of the many agencies we work with and their caseworkers to provide their clients with everything their families need. We see them go above and beyond everyday while still protecting their own health and that of their families. Serving their community.

Caseworkers say Thanks!

Thank you from more of the many caseworkers and agencies that benefited from the Magic of Christmas project this year. We weren’t sure what to expect this year due to so many circumstances beyond everyone’s control. As usual our donors rose to the challenge and found a way to purchase and deliver thousands of gifts that went out to those in need in Greater Lowell and Merrimack Valley. You brought Christmas to over 4000 people this year and for that our partner agencies are extremely grateful!

Grateful for our volunteers

Thank you to our awesome team of volunteers who are doing the work every day that large groups would have in previous years. Because of COVID restrictions we have had to keep the numbers in the warehouse very small. As a result our small number of weekly volunteers are working harder than ever to sort through our incoming donations, help Lori with projects and fill the client clothing bins. We could never do it without them!

Thank you to donor Ricky McKenna for the generous donation of new toys and clothes for the Magic of Christmas project. We love when our donors show their holiday spirit by dressing the part, we’ve had Santa stop by and now the Grinch!
