Holiday Gift Collection - Collage.png

DECEMBER 10, 2018 — With the help of nearly 350 elves in our Toy Workshop, we wrapped almost 6,000 gifts this past weekend at The Big Wrap, our annual wrapping party for our Holiday Gift Collection. All gifts go to families in need, delivering to the children who receive the gifts the magic of the holiday season and giving their parents the pride of being able to provide for their family. We count ourselves lucky to lead this special initiative!

We're grateful to presenting sponsor Eversource Energy for their support of Holiday Gift Collection, and to the hundreds of volunteers, wish card sponsors, and all who make it possible to brighten up the holidays of families in need.
