Each year, the Town of Concord’s Community Services Division, in collaboration with the Concord-Carlisle Community Chest, organizes a town-wide Holiday Giving Program to provide lower-income Concord residents financial support during the holiday season. Due to COVID, we are seeing an especially steep increase in need throughout our community this holiday season.
**This year we are unable to accept donations of toys and gifts. Instead, we would
greatly appreciate the donation of a gift card in any amount, from any merchant.**
As always, we encourage you to think locally, as town merchants are struggling and would greatly appreciate the purchase of a gift card. Please also consider donating a gift card from a supermarket, pharmacy, or a local restaurant. Of course any donated gift card will be appreciated by our neighbors in need, and we thank you in advance for your participation in this seasonal program.
Gift card donations will be accepted through December 13th.
Gift cards can be mailed to Bonny Wilbur, Concord’s Community Services Coordinator, 55 Church Street, Concord, or they may be placed in the donation drop boxes located at:
- Concord Public Library, 129 Main Street, Sudbury Road entrance
- Concord-Carlisle Community Chest, 19 Main Street, Suite #2
- 55 Church Street in West Concord
Please know that if you are able to donate, it will be going to a neighbor in need.
If you have any questions about the program, or know someone in Concord who is in need of assistance, please contact Bonny Wilbur, Community Services Coordinator, at 978-318-3034 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
On behalf of Concord’s Community Services Division and the Concord-Carlisle Community Chest, we wish you a very happy, and healthy, holiday season!
