DONORS - The last day for Drop Off is Wednesday, Dec 9th

WE HAVE TO BE OUT OF THE SPACE AT THE ELKS BY FRIDAY MORNING


Preparing gifts for Drop off:   

  • Each gift must be wrapped, and labeled with the Family Number and Child's first name. We ask for this to help identify the Family number if a bag breaks, or the outer label falls off. 
  •  Package the wrapped gifts for each Family in sturdy, thick, 30-gal plastic bags. Please avoid large, red Santa sacks or 55 gal trash bags, as they become too heavy, and very difficult for the Volunteers and Recipients to carry. 
  • Identify each bag of gifts with the Family Number, total number of bags for the Family, and the number of that particular bag in succession. For example, a Family #123, consisting of 3 bags, would be:
                            Family #123                                     Family #123                               Family #123
                                1 of 3                                                 2 of 3                                           3 of 3

Dropping off gifts: 
  • Gifts should be dropped off at Elks Lodge #850, 380 Social Street, Woonsocket, between 8am and 8pm on the date corresponding to the Family number:
