Every year, the Holliston Newcomers organizes a great project in cooperation with the Holliston Food Pantry
to provide gifts to local families who are in need during the holiday season. In recent years, the number of
families who participate in the Gifts for Giving program has increased tremendously as the town’s population
has grown and economic challenges have multiplied.
Over the years, Gifts for Giving has been a great success for our organization for one reason: the generosity
of our members! There are several ways to pitch in and make a big difference in a child's holiday season
1. “adopt” a child, or several children who are from the same family, and provide gifts for them
2. make a monetary donation that will be used to purchase gifts
3. purchase and donate stocking stuffers or supplies for gift wrapping
4. volunteer to help with last minute shopping.
Help in any and all forms is truly appreciated! We simply can’t do it without you!!
Volunteers who choose to "adopt" a child or children will be provided with plenty of helpful information to
make shopping for the gifts easy and as much fun as possible. Every family participating in the Gifts for Giving
program will provide information about their children, including their gender, age, size, hobbies or interests,
or even suggestions for specific gifts. Information for shopping will be provided to volunteers in mid-
November. The deadline for providing the gifts will be December 6th-8th.
Information regarding last minute shopping or the purchase of stocking stuffers and supplies will be
available in early November.
If you are short on time during the busy season, but would still like to help make a child's holiday season
special, please consider making a monetary donation. All donations will be used to purchase gifts or stocking
stuffers for children in need. Monetary donations may be sent to the Holliston Newcomers Club, P.O.
Box 6581, Holliston, MA 01746, Attn: Gifts for Giving. Please send contributions by December 1, 2013.
Donations can also be made securely through PayPal in increments of $10:
