Residents can take a “wish” from the Christmas tree at Town Hall and purchase that gift — toys or clothing — for a child. The gift can then be dropped off at Town Hall. Anyone who is unable to stop off at Town Hall to pick a wish, can call the Human Services office and request will be provided over the phone.
Gift cards are also needed to help provide turkeys for Christmas dinners.
To help, call Ellen at Human Services, 642-3342, Ext. 5, or go to firstname.lastname@example.org.
