Kits for Kids delivers early holiday happiness in Marlborough


Marlborough – The nonprofit group Kits for Kids helps families in need all through the year with everyday essentials, clothes, and toys. On Dec. 12 they handed out 450 stuffed toys to local children in a special drive through event held in the parking lot of Acorn Self Storage. Santa also made a special visit to the event, greeting everyone, to the delight of the families. Kids also received a gift card and a bottle of water. The items were donated by Northborough PetSmart and a private donor, according to Jay Johnson, who runs Kits for Kids with his wife, Heather.

“They were so nice to provide us with these animals, which have been going into our kits for the past month as well as to the children today,” he noted.
