Give to your Community – Donate to the Holiday Gift Card Program!
Each year, the Town of Concord’s Community Services Division, in collaboration with the Concord-Carlisle Community Chest, organizes a town-wide Holiday Gift Card Program to provide low-income families financial support during the holiday season. Please consider donating a gift card, in any amount, to a family in need. Gift cards from local merchants are especially welcome, as are gift cards from supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants, or big box stores.
Donations will be accepted through December 11th. Gift card donations can be mailed to Bonny Wilbur, Community Services Coordinator, 55 Church Street, Concord, or they may be placed in the donation drop boxes located at:
• Town House, 22 Monument Square, drop box in entry lobby to the left
• Concord-Carlisle Community Chest, 19 Main Street, Suite #2
• 55 Church Street in West Concord, drop box outside to the right of entry
Questions? Contact Bonny Wilbur, Community Services Coordinator at tel. 978-318-3034, or firstname.lastname@example.org
This year we again invite you to create a holiday gift bag for either a local family or a senior who may be struggling this year. Many past donors have said, “Thank you! This is the most meaningful activity my family does during the holidays!” With demand for our services up significantly Open Table needs more participants to ensure that each of our clients receives a gift bag.
You will be provided with a list of suggested items to fill a gift bag. And we will send reminders and other information each of the first 12 days of December.
Gift bags will be collected in Maynard on Friday, December 16, 2-6pm and at Crosby’s Market in Concord on Saturday, December 17, 10am-1pm. Clients will receive gift bags with the final food distribution of 2022.
On Saturday, December 10 from 3-6 pm, come shop in the Thoreau Elementary cafeteria for “new-to-you” toys, games and much more! All proceeds benefit class programming, events and more for students at Thoreau Elementary.
Help PreK – 12th Grade children and their families in Boston who are economically and emotionally impacted this school year.
