Holiday Program Prep in Full Swing!

The EBFP Staff and Volunteers are shopping, organizing, and preparing to give out 300 Christmas Meal baskets to clients on Monday, December 19th between 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. The baskets will contain all the fixings for a nice holiday meal, as well as a gift card that can be used to purchase a turkey, ham, roast, etc. The First Congregational Church in Bristol is graciously donating approximately 100 baskets and the remaining 200 needed will be assembled at the pantry on Sunday, December 18th at 11:00am.

We will also be distributing gifts for 260 children who are members of our client families. This will be happen in the Franklin Court Community Room at the same time at the meal basket distribution. Gift collection is being organized by Dyan Vaughn and her daughter Cara Beller, who are busily collecting gift donations from many businesses and organizations such as the Bristol Post Office, The Toy Shop, Blithewold, Barrington Books, Trane, Tri-Mack Plastics, Ladies Fire Auxiliary, and many others along with numerous individuals. Thank you to everyone who is participating in these efforts!
