Two Ways to Help Others This Holiday Season

Helping Others During the Holidays

Want to help others this holiday season? The Town of Holly Springs is continuing its tradition of helping others by serving as a drop-off location for donated gifts for children. We're also expanding ways to help others by collecting donations for Note in the Pocket.

Donate Gifts for Children

The Christmas Store is hosted by New Horizons Fellowship Church to help local families during the holidays.  

Families needing assistance are able "shop" and select a few donated Christmas gifts for their children that are wrapped by volunteers. The Town Hall lobby is a drop-off location for The Christmas Store. 

A holiday tree in the lobby is decorated with tags containing a child's age and gender. Select a tag and return gifts unwrapped by Nov. 30.

Note in the Pocket

Note in the Pocket provides donated and purchased clothing to impoverished and homeless children in Wake County.  When a school or social service agency identifies such a student, it sends a request for the sizes and types of clothing needed.  

This season, the Town Hall lobby is a drop-off location for new packages of children’s underwear and socks. Find the donation box next to the Christmas tree through Dec. 5. Visit noteinthepocket.org for more information.
