Christmas Giving Program 2023

Once again, I have to awaken that Christmas spirit in you, and I do know some of you are thinking, “This is way too soon!” I assure you we must be on our way, for too soon the winds will be cold and the trees barren and the signs of Christmas will begin to show.

As always, we are reaching out to you for your time and money. Without both of these we cannot do Christmas. So here is the plan to date.

Again this year we need:


I need volunteers to take names of the children and gift requests. If you can use Windows, a mouse, and can type at all, we could use your help. Call us at 508-831-7455 or email us at to determine when you could schedule some time. Please let us know the date and time you would like to come, how long you can stay, and if you are bringing anyone else with you. We need this information so we can make sure we do not double up on the schedule


We take names every day, Monday through Saturday, from 10:00 A.M. until 3:00 P.M.starting on October 7, 2023 and ending December 23, 2023.


We need volunteers to bag incoming gifts and then distribute them. We will be working at the distribution site from December 7th to December 23rd from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. We will need a lot of help on Sunday, December 10th and Sunday, December 17th. On these days, gifts come in from the churches and we will need every bit of help we can get. We also need help from December 16th until December 22nd especially, from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., on December 23rd from 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. and on December 24th from 9:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. This is when most of the people come to pick up their gifts.


As we have for the last few years, we are looking for some very special people who can help us on December 22, 23, and 24. It is this time when the neediest come to sign up for Christmas gifts. Usually, we have to turn them away, not because we don’t have any gifts, but because we do not have any volunteers to make up gift bags for them. If you think you are one of these special Christmas helpers and are willing to take on this challenge let us know either via email at or telephone, 508-831-7455.

We will be working out of 242 Canterbury Street, Worcester MA 01603.

As always, your friends, neighbors and any willing strangers you may meet on the way are most welcome.

May your Christmas be blessed because of what you are about to do.
