Aztec Holiday Wishes Gift Drive

Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School is holding their annual gift drive to help families in the Hudson and Marlborough Massachusetts area. While there are many holiday gift drives going on in the area, we participate in several, I like this one because it not only provides toys and clothing to children and families in need, it provides students in the business department with the opportunity to plan, organize, and execute their own charitable project.

Students are looking for people to adopt families or to drop off new toys at the front desk of the school that can fulfill wishes they hope to grant. The deadline for toys and clothing is December 7th, but cash donations must be at the school by December 2nd to allow the students time to purchase the items on wish lists left unfilled.

To get information on adopting a family or participating in the program, please contact Donna Groccia or April Kelly at (508) 485-9430 x1446.


  1. What a great idea! Knowing how to organize and set up giving will benefit many people when these youngsters start doing these things on their own into adulthood. They then pass on this knowledge to others. So many will benefit from this! Thanks for sharing it. It's one of those feel good things people can do during the holidays.

  2. I agree with Daisy, this is an awesome idea and showing kids how to start young is amazing. Super neat!
