Magic continues to go out to our agencies

Magic of Christmas gifts have started going out to our partner agencies. Amanda from Justice Resource Institute along with her daughter Mia picked up some of their family gifts today in plenty of time for them to get them to their clients families before Christmas. We are so grateful for the support we received this year. Now more than ever our already struggling clients have greater stress to deal with this holiday season. Jill is hearing from individuals who were previously donors and now clients due to the devastation Covid has had on the economy and their families health. Right now some of our greater needs are Size 3T/4T Pull Ups, Size 4T/5T Pull Ups, Size 4 Diapers, Women’s Size M and L long sleeve shirts, Men’s long sleeve shirts all sizes, coats for the whole family, hats, gloves, safety gates, infant swings, pack and play sheets and diaper bags for our clients with infants. If you have any of these items to donate you can drop off next Tuesday-Friday 9-2:30pm and Saturday 9-12:30pm. The warehouse will be closed Thursday-Saturday for Thanksgiving. If you are donating mattress sets please call first to make sure we have the space or 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 our clients with some basic items they need!

Christmas magic

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. In a year filled with stress and worries this will bring a smile to these families on Christmas morning. Just to know that someone in their community cared enough to help them. #christmasspirit

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.

Mrs Claus delivered today

Lori made a video to show you the enormity of the Gaivin family Christmas donation. All of the boxes got moved downstairs into the project area and Lori’s daughter and grandson Jacob dropped in after work to help her arrange them. Jacob gives you a sneak peek into Patricia’s amazing organization and what the boxes contain. Take a look!
