Last year, 210 client families selected gifts for their children from among donations of new, unwrapped toys, books, jewelry, and gift cards. More than 100 volunteers worked on the event, which provided gifts for an estimated 500 children.
Donations valued up to $25 are being collected for children from infancy to age 18 at the Ayer, Groton, Harvard, Littleton, and Shirley police departments and post offices until Dec. 15.
