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.

Generous boy

Meet Aidan Fitzgerald, last week he donated $500 in Market Basket gift cards. Such a generous young man thinking of helping our clients put food on their table in time for Christmas. Thank you Aidan, your donation will help many families!

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!

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!

Thanks from the staff

The night before Christmas and the warehouse is shut up tight for the holiday break but not before we gave out thousands of toys and gifts.

All of our sponsored families gifts have gone out to our participating agencies. Afterward we opened up the warehouse to the caseworkers from our partner agencies to give out all the extra toys as well. The last 2 days of Magic of Christmas is the most hectic and over 25 caseworkers came in and selected from hundreds of toys to give out to their other clients.

Once again we have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our donors, supporters and community and as a result over 4,000 people in need received gifts this year!

The caseworkers and agencies have all been extremely appreciative and grateful for the support of their families in need.

Thank you to everyone that contributed to putting Magic in Christmas for a child or family this year – you will never know how much it means to them!

As always we thank you for helping in any way you can. We couldn’t do this without the support of so many people in our community.

Thank you for helping us put some magic in so many lives this holiday.

Thank you and Happy Holidays from The Wish Project Staff

Caseworkers pick out toys for Christmas

Caseworkers from our partner agencies continued to pick out toys to be delivered to the last of their clients before Christmas. They are thrilled that they are able to help so many of their struggling clients this year. In a year like most of us have never known, donors have become clients and already struggling clients are in even greater need. We are so grateful for the tremendous support from our donors in spite of the pandemic. Our community cares!

Grateful for our donors

Thank you to everyone that donated to our Magic of Christmas project. We have been overwhelmed with your generosity. Lori took this photo this morning, she said the toy was donated today and within an hour it went out to a caseworker from Miles Daycare Center. There will be so many grateful parents and happy children Christmas morning when they receive a gift under the tree!
