Toys for Tots, Holiday Trolley discussed in Northborough

By Drew M. Bailey, Community Reporter

northboroNorthborough – Toys for Tots and the Holiday Trolley were discussed at the Nov. 21 Board of Selectmen meeting.

Fire Department Captain Rob Theve described the upcoming U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program. He said that last year's collection netted around 1,000 toys, and due to the state of the economy, Theve predicted the need would be great this year as well.

Donations are requested to be non-violent, unopened and unwrapped toys. For information on drop-off locations, donating or receiving support, contact Theve at 508-393-1537.

The Holiday Trolley will run Saturday, Dec. 10, between noon and 5 p.m., transporting residents to participating local businesses where they can “shop, eat and be merry,” and support local businesses in the process.

Virginia Simms George, chair of the Community Affairs Committee, and Kimberly Reed, an interior decorator at The Purple Rose, the first stop of the day, spoke to the board about the event. George invited all attendees to a Christmas tree-lighting ceremony, to be held at Blake and Main streets, at 5:30 p.m. following the event. For more information, contact Reed at 508-393-8882.
