These programs are a true example of Neighbors Helping Neighbors. Thanks to our donors and volunteers, many children and teens will have the supplies and clothing they need to go Back to School. Over the winter holidays, children and elders are given an extra reason to smile through our Seasonal Holiday Program.
The Back-to-School Program is offered in the fall for children and teens who are going to school. Each individual participating in the program receives a backpack full of school supplies and new outfits to where.
Each summer, sponsors of our backpack program help us by purchasing and filling backpacks with school supplies for children. They also help purchase clothing for the children of families that benefit from services at NSC. In 2022, with help from our sponsors and supporters, NSC helped 290 children get back to school!
The Birthday Program is offered to parents of children 12 years old and under. Parents can receive items such as invitations, cake mixes, goody bag supplies, paper goods, and a gift to throw a birthday party for their child.
The program also offers the opportunity for children who will be attending a party to pick out a gift to bring to the birthday child.
Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Hanukkah programs provide food and gifts to families and elders in Natick.
Thanksgiving and Winter Holiday Programs provide food and gifts to families and elders in Natick.
Over Thanksgiving, we give seniors and families something to be thankful by providing food for a Thanksgiving celebration.
Whether it is Hanukkah, Christmas or Kwanza, NSC gives parents the opportunity to provide some of the gifts on their children or teen's wish list. For elders, we provide volunteer stuffed gift bags to brighten up their holiday.
