IMPORTANT INFO FOR REHOBOTH FAMILIES IN NEED - HELPING HANDS GEARING UP FOR HOLIDAY SEASON
(September 14, 2016) It’s that time of year once again. Rehoboth Helping Hands is preparing for the upcoming holiday season. Helping Hands distributes Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets for local families and individuals in need. The Blizzard of Giving gift program for children (newborn through high school) is also coordinated through Helping Hands in conjunction with local groups. The Fuel Assistance program offers help to those who find themselves unable to pay for heating. The food pantry distributes food and other items 52 weeks a year to those in need.
Holiday Gifts for Children (newborn through high school): Helping Hands will begin accepting names for the annual Blizzard of Giving Program on October 1 through November 12. Parents and guardians are asked to submit the following information as soon as possible: name, address, ages, clothing size and the child’s wish list for toys, games or other items. Please no requests for electronic gifts. Once the list is complete, Blizzard of Giving Snowflake boards are made available at selected locations in town. Donors are asked to pick a “snowflake” that provides information on an anonymous child’s age and choice of gift. Once the gift is purchased, the snowflake is affixed to the wrapped packaged and returned to donor boxes. The gifts will be distributed between December 10 and December 18. Mail to Steve Martin, Rehoboth Food Pantry, Inc., 127 Martin Street, Rehoboth, MA 02769. Or call 508-252-3263 if you need more information.
Fuel Assistance Program: Helping Hands will provide oil, gas, electric, or wood to help those in need. Emergency fuel assistance is for Rehoboth residents only. Those in need may apply starting October 3 until funds run out. Please call Steve Martin at 508-252-3263 for more information.
Please consider donating to Helping Hands this fall. Various groups and organizations hold annual food drives in October, November and December. The food pantry shelves need constant replenishing of non-perishable items (please check those expiration dates) for weekly food distribution. Additional food items are needed for Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets. Home baked goods are always welcome, as well as paper goods. Cash donations and gift cards are also appreciated.
