Christmas is coming

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the warehouse. The gifts are pouring in before this Saturday’s donation deadline. The Torpey family delivered their gifts for the family they sponsored for Magic of Christmas. We are thrilled with the support we received this year in spite of the pandemic we find ourselves in this year.

Donation dock

New dock procedures

New dock procedures – did you know you can fill out our donation form online before you drop off your donation at the warehouse? If you follow this link it will take you to the donation page and you can fill it out before or after you drop off your donation. Otherwise whoever is working on the dock will give you an Ipad for you to fill it out at that time. We are hoping this will prevent you from standing outside in the cold or in line and move you through the process faster. Photo is of today’s dock volunteer Mel. https://interland3.donorperfect.net/weblink/WebLink.aspx…

Thank you to the McCall & Crowley families for the Christmas families they sponsored and delivered today. Our partner agencies and their caseworkers will be so excited to get these gifts to their clients in time for Christmas.

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.
