Spotlight on five Boston charities
Immediate needs: ABCD holiday toy drive requests reached 5,000-plus last year, and this season, the organization expects more. ABCD needs help through the donation of new, unwrapped toys or money to purchase toys. To help, contact Josh Young at 617-348-6553 or firstname.lastname@example.org. ABCD also has high demand in its fuel-assistance program, helping to fill low-income families’ oil tanks this winter. Last year, the program served 22,000 in Boston, Brookline, and Newton, and this year applications have been coming in at a higher rate. To help, visit www.bostonabcd.org.
