NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – The Northampton St. Patrick’s Association is known for its toy drives each year.
They again are living up to their reputation by filling the Florence Civic Center with donated holiday gifts for what they expect will be a large number of children in need this holiday season.
“We’ve been doing it for eight years now, especially now with the pandemic, we feel more than ever that this is the biggest year to do it for families out there,” said Megan Gilboy, a member of the association.
The Irish-American organization has a special place in its heart for donating to Toys For Tots. Their collection drive also specifically benefits children in need living in the Northampton area.
