The Home for Little Wanderers and WCVB-TV Channel 5 are joining forces to Stuff-a-Truck full of holiday gifts for children and families living in at-risk circumstances on Thursday, November 29, 2012. Local residents and businesses are being put to the challenge to help fill two Bernie & Phyl’s Furniture trucks with new, unwrapped toys for children in The Home’s care as part of the non-profit’s annual Big Wishes Gift Drive. Donations will be accepted at Stuff-a-Truck locations including Legacy Place in Dedham from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Over the past few years, many of The Home’s 600 employees have seen an increasing need for holiday assistance from clients who are served by the agency’s residential and community-based programs across Eastern Massachusetts. Many make holiday requests for essential items including personal hygiene products, coats, socks, linens, and gift cards from stores like Target, Stop & Shop and CVS. As an organization that touches more than 7,000 lives each year, The Home relies on generous assistance from donors and sponsors. For a complete list of ways you can help the children and families who are served by The Home for Little Wanderers this holiday season, visit www.thehome.org/bigwishes. Every effort, no matter how small, will help a child or teenager in need.
