In an effort to help those in need this holiday season, the Community Services Program at United Way of Central Massachusetts has announced its 2013 Holiday Wish List.

The Holiday Wish List offers a wide range of opportunities for businesses and individuals to support non-profit organizations that help local children and families. Participants can help through donating gifts, volunteering at a holiday party, or creating food baskets for families.

"This year we see even more need for food donations, food baskets, and gift cards to grocery stores, as well as other basics like warm mittens and coats,” Heidi M. Paluk, Vice President of External Affairs at United Way of Central Massachusetts told GoLocal. “Poverty continues to be an issue for so many families. They are not looking for the latest toy, just help to stay warm or be able to buy groceries."

The 2013 Holiday Wish List can be viewed at www.unitedwaycm.org.

Investing in Central MA

In total, United Way of Central Massachusetts will invest more than $5.4 million this year in programs and initiatives serving people in 30 cities and towns in Central Massachusetts (including Auburn, Barre, Boylston, Brookfield, Douglas, East Brookfield, East Douglas, Grafton, Holden, Hubbardston, Leicester, Millbury, New Braintree, Northbridge, North Brookfield, Northborough, Oakham, Oxford, Paxton, Princeton, Rutland, Shrewsbury, Spencer, Sterling, Sutton, Upton, Uxbridge, West Boylston, West Brookfield and Worcester.)
