Brighten the holidays for local families & seniors

Horizon Toy Drive for Metrocrest Services

For many families the holidays can be a difficult time of year, buying gifts and putting extra food on the table is simply not possible. Some families are worrying about more important things, like how they will keep their lights on, or where their next meal will come from.
As Metrocrest Services prepares for its final distribution of the year, they ask for our support of food, toys, and coats donations. This is a community-wide effort, supported by generous donors and volunteers who help through local business, church, and individual contributions. 

Here are links to details:

  • Baking items:  cooking items, baking mixes
