Marlborough – Community leaders joined about two dozen Marlborough Rotary Club members and their families to fill boxes with groceries in a well-organized assembly line Dec. 21 at Market Basket in Hudson.

Next, they made special deliveries in Marlborough to give turkeys with all the fixings for holiday dinners to 40 families in need of assistance.

The supermarket provided discounts on groceries purchased by the nonprofit organization. Mark’s Moving & Storage donated the boxes, as they do for the Rotarians’ annual Turkey Shoot fundraiser.

Club member Peggie Thorsen noted, “This is our members reaching out to help Marlborough families have a brighter holiday.”
