Care and Share Party

Guests are invited to donate a gift for a child in need

Share the joy of your birthday, bat mitzvah, baby shower or special event by hosting a Care and Share Party. In lieu of gifts, ask guests to donate items for kids in need. Care and Share Birthday kids receive a certificate of appreciation and a tour of our facility when they drop off their donations.

Choose a Theme:

  • Ready to Learn (May-August) school supplies, backpacks

  • Keeping Warm (September-January) hats, mittens, gloves

  • Holiday Joy (October-December) pajamas, fleece blankets, clothes

  • Sleep Tight (February-April) fleece blankets, pajamas, socks, underwear

  • Baby Shower (Year-round) diapers, wipes, rash cream, onesies

Call 978-223-5767 or email us to sign up.


Sponsor a Drive

Community Giving Tree partners with local businesses, places of worship, schools, day camps, town libraries, and social groups to collect seasonal items throughout the year. Make a difference by sponsoring a drive for a two week period. We will provide you with a collection box, specific list of items needed, and all the promotional information you’ll need to make your drive a success.

Back to School Supplies July & August

Without basic tools, school is a struggle for children in need. With your help, hundreds of local students can head back to school with new backpacks, pens, pencils, folders and notebooks when you sponsor a community drive.

Coats for Families October to December

New England winters are brutal without proper outdoor clothing. By sponsoring a winter coat drive, you can help us distribute jackets, hats, mittens, and a little warmth to families in need.

Holiday Gifts November & December

Many low income families do not have the resources to give gifts to their children during the winter holidays. Plan a holiday gift collection of new clothes, socks and underwear, PJs and more, during this special time of year.

Diapers and Wipes Year-round

Some mothers can’t afford to use more than one diaper per day, leading to poor infant health. You can help by collecting packages of disposable diapers, baby wipes, and diaper rash cream.

For more information call 978-223-5767 or email us.
