Once again we are gearing up for the Christmas Giving Program. Yup, it all starts at 5:00 a.m. Saturday, October 6, 2018. I just love writing to you about Christmas while the temperature is in the 90’s! However, I do need to make you aware that we will be counting on you to come and volunteer starting on the first Saturday in October and continuing right up to December 24th. We will be doing applicant intake every Saturday, from 5:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Starting October 6, 2018, and also on Sundays, October 14, 21, 28 and November 4 and 11, 2018 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We will be opening up the distribution center on December 9, 2018 at 9:00 a.m., with the first day of incoming gifts on December 9, 2018 and the second incoming date on December 16, 2015. On December 23, 2018 we will be collecting late arriving gifts. On these days, we will especially need lots of volunteers to go out and pick up the gifts and then sort them for distribution to children’s gift bags. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the dates and times you plan on coming in and your expectation of how many people are coming with you. The distribution center is located at 242 Canterbury St., Worcester MA. You can also call us at 508-831-7544. And, oh, by the way, Merry Christmas!
