Thanksgiving Baskets

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  And with the help of Holliston Newcomer volunteers and our local businesses and community members, many deserving families who would not have otherwise did as well. The Holliston Historical Society Barn was bustling with activity on the Saturday before Thanksgiving as our member volunteers and their families assembled over 160 Thanksgiving Baskets for the Holliston Food Pantry and other local organizations. 

It was so satisfying to see our community come together to make this project such a success.  We had so many generous donations from our local businesses and community members, which helped to purchase all the produce and gift cards.  Food drives were held by almost every organization in town - so much so that they collected almost all of the non-perishable items that we needed!  And between the Girl Scouts at our food drive, HKHO (Holliston Kids Helping Others) making over 150 cards, and the Holliston High School Hockey Team helping with assembly, our job was made so much easier.  
We couldn’t be more thankful for the support we received from the community on this project. We are so proud that the HNC had a part in making Thanksgiving such a great day for so many of our neighbors.
