NORTHBOROUGH – The Northborough Helping Hands Association (NHHA) is kicking off its “Making Spirits Bright” campaign. It will be accepting gift card and monetary donations through Monday, Nov. 8.
The group plans to serve 130 households this year after receiving a grant from Fallon Health to fund grocery store gift cards.
Recipients of NHHA’s Holiday Outreach programs are Northborough residents participating in social service programs.
Last year, NHHA gave gift cards and new coats to 136 children. They also gave grocery cards to senior citizens and families in need.
NHHA modified its Holiday Outreach program last year due to the pandemic. The Association plans to have a similar format this year.
Gift cards to stores including Target, Walmart, T.J. Maxx and Marshalls in quantities of $25 and $50 are suggested, but any donation is appreciated.
Any donations will be used to make sure parents receive gift cards to purchase holiday gifts for their children, which will be distributed with a Thanksgiving meal.
Donations can be made online at https://northboroughhelpinghands.org/ or by mail to Northborough Helping Hands, Holiday Program, P.O. Box 383, Northborough, MA 01532.
