ADOPT A FAMILY 2017 - Thank you for your support for this important cause!

It is that time of year again, and the Tyngsborough Public School’s sponsored Adopt-A-Familyprogram is beginning its annual efforts as we approach the 2017 holiday season.

The Adopt-A-Family program has been in existence for over forty years and provides assistance to needy families within our community during the holidays. The continued goal of the program is to assist those in need within our community by providing a meal, as well as gifts for children and teens who might otherwise go without. Last year this Adopt-A-Family program was able to assist over 100 needy families and elderly with help from students in our schools, private citizens and a few community businesses. This year will be no different, times continue to be difficult for a growing number of families.

In order to continue to provide assistance, we are reaching out to community members and businesses in the greater community for support. At this time the program is in need of the following:

  • Family and children sponsors, please email our Family Liaison Melissa Mallous at Melissa.Mallous@tyngsboroughps.org
  • Gift cards to local businesses (Walmart, Target, Market Basket, Old Navy, etc.)
  • AAF Gift Basket Raffle - Purchase raffle tickets - AAF tickets can be purchased in the main office of TES, TMS and THS beginning November 6, 2017. The raffle will end on December 7, 2017 and the winters will be announced on December 8, 2017.
  • Monetary donations (checks made out to Tyngsborough High School, memo: Adopt A Family Program) can be sent to Tyngsborough Public Schools, 50 Norris Road, Tyngsborough, MA 01879, ATTN: Sharon Fairbanks

If you are interested and able to make a donation, sponsoring a child/family yourself, or as a group, or offering support in another way, please contact one of the Adopt-A-Familycommittee members listed below. We look forward to establishing new partnerships within our community. Your contribution, along with the combined efforts and generosity of many, will ensure another successful season of giving for our neighbors in need.

Warm regards,

Sarah Lewenczuk Melissa Mallous
