Wellspring House’s Annual Holiday Store will be held this year on Saturday, December 13th and Sunday, December 14th. In its 18th year, the Holiday Store program provides an opportunity for low-income parents to “shop” by appointment for toys and gifts for their children. This year Wellspring expects to serve 750 children from more than 350 families.
The operation of the Holiday Store relies strongly on the generosity of the Cape Ann community. Many individuals and local organizations are holding toy drives, brightening the holidays for those most in need in our community.
On Sunday, November 16th Cape Ann Pee Wee Football and Cheerleaders held a toy drive at their Championship Sunday event at Newell Stadium. Over 100 items were collected. Gloucester Fire Department, as well as Manchester Fire and Police Departments, are also holding drives. New, unwrapped, non-violent toys/gifts may be dropped off at any of these stations until December 10th.
