Donate to Loaves & Fishes Pantry
TIS THE SEASON-SHOP FOR YOUR KIDS!
It's time for the annual Loaves & Fishes' "Shop for Your Kids Day" event, which will be held on Thursday, December 20th 2012, at the Devens Community Center at Rogers Field. Last year, thanks to generous donations, we helped over 200 clients happily shop for almost 500 children. With the assistance of over 100 volunteers, our clients chose gifts, from toys to books, and selected new rolls of wrapping paper for their treasures. It was heartwarming to see so many families donating their precious time and gifts to help ensure other families would have a happy holiday. We also received donations from many local businesses and organizations; including the local police departments who sponsored toy drives. Once again, the Ayer Police Dept. went above and beyond the call of duty and provided nearly 2200 toys! It was comforting to see such overwhelming support during these difficult economic times.
This season we are seeking donations of new unwrapped toys for children from infancy to age 18. Please keep in mind the needs of families with tween and teen children. Please take a look at our Most Wanted Toys list before you go shopping. As always, if you do not have time to shop, we would be grateful for your monetary support as well. If you are interested in sponsoring a toy drive, hosting a donation box or volunteering to help with this event, please send us an email at LFshop4yourkids@gmail.com or contact Karen at 978-772-4627.
Toy donations will be accepted at the Devens Community Center, 100 Sherman Avenue, Devens, MA during the following times:
Monday, November 26th 6:00pm-8:00pm
Donations will also be accepted at Loaves & Fishes and at the many businesses and organizations which have graciously agreed to host a donation collection box (Police Stations in Ayer, Groton, Harvard, Littleton and Shirley, Littleton High School, Littletowne Toys and the Shirley Library).
