Bay Cove Supporters Make Christmas Merry for Families We Serve
On December 13, our Early Intervention program in Dorchester was turned into a veritable Santa’s Workshop, courtesy of longtime Bay Cove supporters the “Fifty Families.”
Each year, this group of dedicated donors from the town of Lincoln (pictured, with Bay Cove EI staff) generously make the season bright by providing holiday presents for the children and parents who receive services through our EI program. The group receives wishlists from our staff—on behalf of families who might otherwise be unable to afford gifts at the holidays—and then travel to Dorchester with carloads full of brightly-wrapped packages for staff to deliver.
Having well outgrown the moniker “Fifty Families” (named for the original number of participants from Lincoln), this year more than 130 households came together to purchase gifts for those we serve. They offered an amazing abundance of kindness, gifting our families with close to 250 wrapped presents, more than 5,500 diapers, and over $2,000 in giftcards to local department and grocery stores.
We cannot thank the “Fifty Families” enough for their enduring support and their profound generosity, and for reminding us all about the true joy of giving!
