GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A non-profit organization in Greenfield is trying to help families in need over the holidays.
It’s the third year in a row the Recover Project in Greenfield has run their toy drive. The non-profit organization is collecting new and used toys for children of all ages.
Toys have included sports equipment, clothing, coloring books, and board games. Families will be able to come pick out gifts, December 22nd, which is also the last day donate.
The toy drive was started by a volunteer at the Recover Project as a way to give back to the community.
Peggy Arce, Peer-Coordinator of Recover Project, told 22News, “Those of us in recovery have had struggles in our lives and today we are able to give back to the community in this way and many other ways also.”
Arce said donations this year have been strong.
Last year, the Recover Project was able to provide toys to 150 children including a new mountain bike.
The Recover Project on Federal Street in Greenfield is open Monday to Friday from 8:00 in the morning to 5:30 at night.
