Annual Holiday Gift Drive
The holiday season is the perfect time to show those around you how much you care. For many of us, we come together as families and/or friends to celebrate. And as we share warm dinners, we also exchange gifts. Yet, there are those who do not have any of this for the holidays; no family or friends and not one gift to open.
In the spirit of the season, The Bridge of Central MA is holding our annual Holiday Gift Drive. To assist in our efforts, we are asking you to support us and consider making a monetary donation, gift certificates, or a donation of an item/s for the Holiday Gift Drive. Examples of items for donation are towels, bedding (twin size), Sweatshirts, art supplies, kitchen items, hats, mittens and gloves, scarves, gift cards to grocery stores and supermarkets and personal care items.
As, you know, developing connections is a key theme in every Bridge program. The homes we provide and the relationships we foster supply a sense of family and community that individuals we serve may not be able to form elsewhere.
Like most families, we celebrate the holidays together. This year, our goal is to get a gift to each of the more than 1,000 individuals in need that are served by The Bridge. One gift is not a lot, in fact most of us get many more. One gift for each person, that is our goal. We would appreciate any donation that you could give us to reach our goal.
