KB Toy Train donation

Thank you to Kaitlyn Brennan for her KB Toy Train donation dropped off yesterday. She launched the event two weeks ago “Fill the KB Toy Train for the Magic of Christmas,” and so many people joined from all over (SC – PA – NY – NH – ME – MA) and either shipped or joined the local and safe drop-off yesterday morning (even in the rain). From donors dropping off, their packages, Kaitlyn in the “toy train” enroute to Wish, to her helpers unloading at the warehouse! Such a wonderful undertaking of so many people to help our community this holiday season, and it all started with one person and one idea, thanks Kaitlyn, we know our clients will be very grateful!

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.

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!
