WHAT: Senator Feeney’s First Annual Holiday Gift Card Drive, Drive-Through Drop-Off
WHEN: Sunday, December 19 from 11:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M.
WHERE: IBEW LOCAL 104, 900 S Main St, Mansfield, MA 02048

Senator Paul Feeney (D - Foxborough) invites members of the community to participate in an upcoming charitable event to be held in the Bristol & Norfolk Senate district that will benefit individuals and families served by New Hope, Inc. of Attleboro.

Senator Feeney’s first annual Holiday Gift Card Drive is ongoing, with Feeney and his staff planning a ‘Drive-Through Drop-Off” event on Sunday, December 19, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the parking lot of the IBEW Local 104 union hall, 900 S. Main Street in Mansfield. Individuals are asked to donate gift cards of any denomination and from a variety of retailers. All gift cards and proceeds will go to New Hope, Inc. to continue supporting survivors of domestic and sexual violence through the holiday season and throughout the year. Gift card donations to gas stations, grocery stores, pharmacies, Target, Walmart, Amazon or similar retailers are greatly appreciated.

“The holiday season is my favorite time of year,” said Senator Paul Feeney. “As we count our own blessings, buy presents for those close to us, and gather with family, we also have an opportunity to support others who may be struggling through the season or escaping dangerous situations for them and their families. New Hope does incredible work for so many people, and I am hopeful that this Holiday Gift-Card Drive, fueled by the generosity of our friends and neighbors, will be successful in supporting those that need our help. All you have to do is pick up a Gift Card, or two, or three while you are out shopping and swing by to drop it off on Sunday, December 19th at our festive event. You don’t even have to get out of the car and it only takes a minute!”

Those unable to attend the Drive-Through Drop-Off event can still donate by mailing gift cards to Senator Paul Feeney, 182 North Street, Foxborough MA 02035 or directly to New Hope, Inc., 247 Maple Street, Attleboro MA 02703. Your generous donations in the form of gift cards are enormously appreciated and will go a long way towards supporting survivors of domestic and sexual assault throughout the Attleboro area. Any and all gift card donations are welcome and will undoubtedly ease some financial stress for area survivors.

New Hope, Inc. is a non-profit residential emergency shelter serving those affected by domestic and sexual violence throughout the Attleboro area and offer extensive wrap-around support to survivors such as assistance in housing searches, court advocacy, medical advocacy, trauma informed counseling and educational programming.
