Join in the Gift of Giving this Holiday Season

You can still pick up a mitten to buy a gift card for a needy child/family.  To help fulfill wishlists, we are also collecting new items (pjs, hats/gloves, toys, arts & crafts, sports items, etc) in the Lobby. Wishlists are due back by Saturday, December 3 to the Holson’s, 66 Forest St, Newton Highlands.  If you have questions or can’t make it to the M-R lobby for a mitten, contact Sarah Healy (sarah_dupre@hotmail.com), Kristin Holson (holsonfamily@verizon.net) or Jennifer Manthei (jennifer.manthei@gmail.com). Check out the backpack flier for all of the details.  Many thanks in advance!
