|This Friday, December 6, wraps up our Holiday Cheer sponsorship period to support hundreds of local children, as well as adults experiencing homelessness. With Thanksgiving falling so late, we realize many haven't given thought to the soon coming Holidays.
It is sobering to see hundreds of requests for simple necessities: bed sheets, underwear and shoes for our New England winters.
We are 213 sponsors away from meeting our goal to provide 600 Bundles of Cheer. The target was lofty, yet we embarked on this effort, resting in the confidence that as our work continues and our base expands, we could collectively rise and meet the growing needs in our communities.
Join us today to SPUR Holiday Cheer.
Sponsor a wish list before Thursday during business hours:
Mud Puddle Toys, Marblehead
Tower School, Marblehead
Refind Store, Salem
Our office, 9a - 5p, 6 Anderson Street, Marblehead
Can’t pick one up? Email Bryan Lamoreau, our Volunteer & Event Drive Manager. He will email you a wish list.
Don’t have time to shop? Consider a tax-deductible financial gift earmarked for our drive.
In our four-year history, with the continued partnership of our communities, the drive has grown larger each year. And each year, every wish list has been sponsored.
Today the gap is large but we have every reason to believe in the next four days, despite the weather and turn-around time, we can count on you to partner with us and make the Holidays cheerier this season for so many of our neighbors.
Thank you for your time, for being an active part of our Community of Doers and for considering this invitation to join with us to SPUR Holiday Cheer.
