Hillside Gives Back! An annual day of service supporting Cradles to Crayons

We need your help! For the first time ever, the Hillside community is participating in this town-wide community day of service to support children in need across Massachusetts.

Two ways you can help:

  • Donate: We need gently used clothes (all seasons), shoes, coats, small toys, baby equipment and books and new pajamas, socks and underwear for children ages 0-14 years. There will be a box in the school lobby starting Monday, March 9th to collect all the items.
  • Volunteer: Come with your family to sort, pack and load donations from 10 am-2 pm on Saturday March 28th at Needham High. We have learned that in years past, this day of service is a wonderful experience. Not only do families help with sorting and loading items, but some kids also help write letters to other children wishing them a great school year (for next year). You need not volunteer for the entire time periodd, come for as long as your schedule permits. We need all the help we can get! Register to volunteer by emailing Needham's Cradles To Crayons.

Next PTC Meeting: Wednesday March 11th, 7:15pm in the Media Center
