Community-Based Service Learning Opportunity: Hilltown Holiday Help!

For more than twenty years local families have received help with gifts for their children through a community project called Hilltown Holiday Help. Children of families with low to moderate income in the hilltowns are eligible to receive clothing and toys.

This effort is organized by Hilltown Family Center and Hilltown Social Services programs in conjunction with the National Honor Society at Gateway Regional High School. Wish Lists will be available at Hilltown Community Center from Monday, October 29 through Monday, November 26th. Children who live in Blandford, Chester, Huntington, Middlefield, Montgomery, Russell, and Worthington, newborn through the age of twelve, may be eligible. Please bring proof of residency and birth certificates or social security cards for children. Gifts will be distributed on Thursday, December 13, 1 – 5pm, at Hilltown Community Center.

Look for the National Honor Society’s Boot Drive and collection on Saturday November 17th in downtown Huntington. Local businesses, schools, churches, organizations and area residents are invited to help with fundraising and shopping to provide gifts. We can help you give a gift to someone in need in our
local communities. Hilltown Holiday Help has also found recipients for holiday meals, cords of wood, help with utility bills, gift cards, gifts for teens and adults, and other items when provided.

If you are interested in donating or have questions, please call Susan at 413-667-2203 x 311 or Kim at 413-667-2203 x 310
