The holidays are almost here, and more local families than ever are struggling to pay their heat and food bills. Since their parents have little no money available for toys, many local children could be facing a bleak holiday season. With a little effort, you can help make this a magical time for hundreds of children.
Loaves & Fishes annual “Shop for Your Kids Day” will be held on Dec. 18 at the Bob Eisengrein Community Center formerly known as the Devens Community Center, 100 Sherman Avenue, Devens. Last year, just over 200 clients “shopped” from a wide selection of new toys, books, jewelry and gift cards, all donated by generous residents of nearby towns. Thanks to the efforts of more than 100 volunteers working to prepare and run the event, almost 500 children received gifts from their parents or guardians; many of these children would not have received anything without your help.
