Food for the holiday

Thank you to Kayla Cutter and her friends for the awesome donation of Market Basket gift cards for our clients. These gift cards will enable our clients to put a meal on their table for Thanksgiving when they might not otherwise have been able to. Such a wonderful example of the community coming together to help their neighbors during this very difficult year.

Student donation drive

Thank you to Chelmsford High School student Joshua Higgins for holding a collection drive to donate toothpaste and deodorant. These basic toiletries are so important to our clients who were already struggling before the pandemic started. We are grateful to our youth donors and schools for encouraging helping the community by reaching out to us and finding out our current needs and how they can help. If you would like to help out like Joshua and earn community service hours for school, scouts or just to give back please email Tina at tina@thewishproject.org and she will be happy to talk to you about some options for holding a donation drive and our current needs.

Incredible toy donation

The Gaivin family arrived at the warehouse today, without a sleigh, but bearing many, many toys and gifts for The Magic of Christmas. They are legendary at The Wish Project. Every year they arrive and back up a truck filled with boxes all neatly labeled with the contents based on age and sex for guidance. They are meticulously organized and extraordinarily generous. Patricia Gaivin is like our own Mrs. Claus! We look forward to her visit every year and marvel at the generosity of her family. Their contribution will make so many families in Merrimack Valley delighted Christmas morning. Patricia is joined by her daughter Bethany and grandson Mitchell.

Mattress sets needed

Thank you to our donor John for the donation of a mattress set last week. There are few things more basic than a bed to sleep on. At the moment we need full and queen mattress sets without rips or stains and adjustable metal bed frames for our clients. If you have one to spare and can drop it off please email donategoods@thewishproject.org and let Grace know you will be delivering one or you can just show up without an appointment because we need them at this time. Thank you for helping us to provide families and individuals in Merrimack Valley with beds to sleep on.

Christmas donations

Thank you to Cody and Sean Waldron for their delivery of their family gifts for Magic of Christmas.

This family will be so excited and grateful on Christmas morning that someone in their community wanted to help their family have a wonderful holiday!

Young donors

Sarah and Michael are two of this weekends Saturday donors. They brought new toys along with their other donations. These will go out as birthday gifts along with birthday bags to our clients children. Thank you to the many generous donors that dropped off donations on Saturday. As a result of the abundance of clothing donations we will not be accepting donations of clothing this week until we can sort through everything that has arrived. Some things we are still in need of and can accept are laundry soap, safety gates, toasters, copy paper and cleaning supplies including spray bottles so we can make our own disinfectant cleaner to give out. If you have any of these items to donate you can drop off Tuesday-Friday 9-2:30pm and Saturday 9-12:30pm, no appointment necessary. If you are donating mattress sets we will continue to schedule those drop offs through our email donategoods@thewishproject.org. If you prefer to shop online we have an Amazon wish list where you can purchase our most needed items and ship direct to us https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/D0WB109LX427… . Thank you for helping us provide basic items our clients need!
