We will be opening our doors to the community to come and check out the behind-the-scenes work of our everyday processes and see how the magic comes together.

Savers Donation Drive

 

Christmas is for Kids is hosting a Savers Donation Drive! on Saturday, June 11 from 9 AM - 11 AM. We will be collecting your gently used items to our drop off center located at 135 County Street, Attleboro. Items accepted include clothing, shoes, accessories, books, linens and small household items. Sorry no furniture can be accepted.

Your donated items will help us raise funds for our annual Christmas gift drive for the local children.

This drive has been successful in the past thanks to the overwhelming support from our community. No donation is too small. So grab a bag, purge your closets and bring your donations to the Drop off center on Nov. 14th & 15th.

Looking forward to seeing you!
