Foxborough Board of Selectmen Agenda
For over 20 years, the Gifts for Kids Program has helped ease the financial burden for less fortunate families during the holiday season. This year, we have been asked to provide gifts for over 1000 children identified by human service providers in South Norfolk County (Bellingham, Canton, Dedham, Foxboro, Medfield, Millis, Norfolk, Norwood, Plainville, Sharon, Walpole, Westwood and Wrentham). As the holidays near, we are asking for your renewed support so that we may continue to bring joy to these families in our communities.
To Sponsor a child:
Starting November 15, email or call one of the following individuals between 9AM and 9PM:
- Teri Gorsky firstname.lastname@example.org 617-267-1441
- Katherine Dowd email@example.com 781-784-4405
- Karen Gordon firstname.lastname@example.org 508-384-7616
You will be given information about a child along with packaging instructions. Drop off is at the VFW on Robbins Road in Walpole on December 16 and at Our Lady of Sorrows in Sharon on December 18 between 4:00 and 6:00pm.
If you wish to make a cash donation, please make your check payable to Gifts for Kids and send to Gifts for Kids, Inc, PO Box 464, Sharon, MA 02067. Gifts for Kids is a local, all volunteer, 501©3 nonprofit organization.
