We have had such a huge outpouring of support for this project from the community, and we feel so grateful to live in such a wonderful town! So many groups have already committed to helping out by collecting the needed non-perishable items, making cards to be included in the baskets, or signing up to volunteer at our food drive at Shaw’s Ashland. And the donations have already starting rolling in!
Every year there are local families who struggle to put a meal on the table at Thanksgiving. With your generous support this Thanksgiving we hope to provide a complete holiday dinner for over 150 Holliston area families. Your help is critical to reaching this goal!
Here are the ways you can help:
- Donate funds online or mail your donation to Katrine Giroux, 147 Mohawk Path, Holliston. We rely on donated funds to purchase produce, turkeys, and other basket items.
- Volunteer at our Food Drive on Saturday, November 3, 9am-4pm at Shaw's Ashland. Sign up here.
- Volunteer at the Basket Assembly on Saturday, November 17, 9am-12pm at the Holliston Historical Society Barn. Sign-up here. Note that we are in need of another truck to pick up produce on the morning of assembly at Shaw’s Ashland and deliver to the Holliston Historical Barn. Time commitment is 730 am -830 am.
