Help with Winter Gifts


The CSO needs your help. Every year the CSO works with the Hilltown Churches Food pantry in Ashfield, MA which sponsors the Winter Gifts program. The goal is to match 50 children with sponsors who will provide 2 articles of warm clothing and 1 toy for each child. Sponsorship can be done as an individual or group of friends or colleagues. Parents or guardians designate the type of gifts and clothing their child can use so you know that your gifts will be meaningful. This will require you to raise about $40-80 per child that you sponsor. The program provides emergency food services to well over 150 families in need in rural W. Franklin County. It is non-denominational and not religiously affiliated. The Pantry will accept monetary donations. Contact CSO cso@smith.edu if you are interested in sponsoring a child or have questions.
