Helping Hands for the Holidays

Our Helping Hands for the Holidays program is underway! Click HERE to fill out the form to become a Sponsor. Please be patient with us as we are in the process of collecting information about the families that are in desperate need of this assistance. Last year, Worcester County GOLD provides gifts for over 800 children and 68 vulnerable adults. With only one full-time and one part-time employee, we depend on caring, generous volunteers and sponsors from our community to help us brighten the holidays for our neighbors who need assistance. Thank you for your consideration of support!
