2013 Holiday Program was met with huge success serving approximately 500 individuals. HAWC started receiving donations just after Thanksgiving some of the gifts included: sports equipment and apparel, educational toys/ games and arts & crafts, jewelry, cosmetics, clothing and winter jackets. We also received a number of gift cards empowering our parents to be able to buy specific gifts for their children.
The donations came from individuals, private business, civic organizations, community groups, and schools from all over Massachusetts. Some of the donors included:
- Disabled American Veterans of Swampscott
- Lynn English High school Junior USMC ROTC Cadets
- Danvers High School
- Seacoast Quilt Guild
- W.B. Mason Co.
- Johnson O’Conner Feron & Carucci LLP
- Marblehead Fire Department
- Among others
We really appreciate the support of the community and have some much gratitude for all the donations that were brought to HAWC this holiday season.
