The gift of giving

Gift itemsWe need your help! Do you have items like these lying around your home that you don’t need, or even know what to do with? The Community Human Services Committee is sponsoring a new initiative for the kids in Kelleher Park, Newburyport’s Public Housing for Families. We want the children to experience the joy of “shopping” for and giving a holiday gift to their mom and/or dad. We are asking FRS members to donate new/unused items that would make nice gifts: candles, mugs, unopened lotion gift packages, jewelry, picture frames, garden tools, etc. Nancy Crochiere will be collecting items at coffee hour through December 10, 2017.  Volunteers and donations of gift wrap are also welcome.
