Marlborough/Northborough – Three Marlborough families in need recently had a very merry Christmas thanks to the generosity of members of Get In Shape for Women of Northborough.
Kathy Griffin-Ireland, parish secretary at Immaculate Conception Parish in Marlborough, reached out to Jody Chaffee, owner of Get in Shape for Women, with a donation proposal to help families most in need within the community during the holiday season.
Chaffee said that the studio’s clients eagerly signed up to provide something warm, fun, and/or delicious for each member of the three families. Within a matter of days, the small group training studio was filled with festively wrapped presents, homemade gifts, platters of cookies, candy and holiday fare. Other clients contributed generous cash donations which were used to purchase the items and gift cards.
The cooperation and united spirit of giving was remarkable among clients throughout this project, Chaffee said, and their generosity was greatly appreciated by the families.
