A Time for Children - and Toys
Each year we provide toys to children ages 14 and younger whose parents are clients at the pantry. We are fortunate to have many people helping us with this huge endeavor! The Cape Cod Corvette Club has already scheduled their collection and delivery of toys to us and the Marines Toys for Tots has always helped us. This year the Harwich Chamber of Commerce's Chrismas in Harwich Committee is also assisting us and has the following drop off spots: Benson Young & Downes Insurance, Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank (Harwich Port, East Harwich and Patriot Square), Commonwealth Associates, The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod and Second Glance, our upscale thrift shop.
The above picture is Lisa Griffin and her family who have a family tradition of giving gifts to the pantry. Lisa is an incredible shoper, finds the very best bargains and has just delivered two truckloads full of toys and clothing for our gift program.
Gifts should be new and unwrapped and we are looking for items in the $15-$20 range if possible. Some suggested items are sports memorabilia (Patriots, Bruins Celtics and yes even Red Sox) sweatshirts, t shirts, hats etc), gift cards to Best Buy or the Simon Mall, Aeropostale clothing items (very inexpensive online am told) and the new game that is all the rage called Hedbanz. As an English major the spelling of that game makes me wince but I can attest it was a great hit at Thanksgiving for all ages including my niece's 4 year old son, Lou and his great-parents (my parents) who ages are only given out on a need to know basis.
