The Holiday Program


The Holiday Program was established to help Burlington, MA families in need during the holiday season.

Each holiday season, in conjunction with the Burlington Mall, People Helping People sponsors the Wish Tree at the Burlington Mall. This event supports needy Burlington families by providing new gifts for children. Each child receives gifts of clothing as well as three additional wishes for toys, books, electronics or gift cards.

Last holiday season approximately 160 Thanksgiving dinners were distributed to families and elders.  In addition, we provided gifts of clothing and toys to more than 170 children in Burlington, MA.

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Judy Walsh at  617-797-6786. or contact by email.


Volunteering with the Holiday Program

We are always looking for help during the holiday program (November/December). You can help in many ways: Adopt a family/child for the holiday Season,  volunteer to sit at Wish Tree for a two-hour shift, volunteer to pick up gifts at the Mall, or deliver to a sorting location or volunteer to sort gifts to be distributed to families.
