Santa Fund/Holiday Adopt-a-Family Program
We have 800 children in need of assistance for the holidays this year. If you are able to help by “adopting a child” or a family for the holidays, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 603.886.2866. Note: Registration for holiday assistance for 2017 is now closed.
Other Ways to Help During the Holidays:
- Buy toys and household items. This will help us fill in the gaps for children who do not receive their wish list items and/or for any last minute requests. We have two wish lists online: a Target list and an Amazon list. Please have the items shipped to your address and then kindly drop them off at our 7 Concord Street, Nashua location by December 15, 2017.
- Give a monetary donation so that we can purchase gift cards for teens and for Moms in our programs.
- Volunteer your time. We need muscle power to help accept and distribute gifts! Please consider signing up to help unload large trucks of holiday gifts donated by our Platinum Partner, BAE.
Thank you to all of those in the community who gave so generously to our Holiday Program in 2016. With your help, we were able to provide toys and warm clothing to 981 children in need. Special thanks to BAE, Right Network, Church of the Good Shepherd and many other individuals, organizations and businesses for your generosity!
Since our inception, we have offered a program to help ensure smiles to the children of our community on Christmas morning. Santa lives in each and every one of us, and through this program the true meaning of the Christmas spirit becomes apparent.
In 1994, the Front Door Agency joined with the Telegraph to ensure the Santa Fund resources are allocated to those most in need. Through this partnership, we have provided gifts, food, toys and clothing to nearly 1,100 children each and every year.
Local businesses, civic groups, individuals and religious organizations all participate in adopting children for the holidays. It is estimated that through the generosity of the community we pass through over $100,000 in in-kind contributions.
Registrations for assistance are held yearly in late October and early November.
