Santa Distributes Donated Gifts to 650 Club Kids

December 21, 2017

Santa Claus distributed donated toys and gift cards to more than 650 excited members of the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence at the annual holiday party on December 20. Groups of longtime volunteers served the holiday dinner, which was donated and prepared by the 99 Restaurants of Andover and North Andover.

In addition to annual holiday dinners, youth members are served supper each night as part of their $40 annual membership fee. However, many Lawrence families rely on scholarships in this city in which nearly one-third of the population lives below the poverty level. Individual and corporate donors bridge the gap between the actual cost of programming, which exceeds $850 per child annually.
