Sharing Holiday Warmth

Clothing and Food Drive Continues Charitable Tradition

Join Historic Newton in proudly perpetuating the Jackson family’s 19th century “Santa Claus Agency,” which brought “joyful charity” to Newton families. Continuing this holiday tradition, Historic Newton sponsors a clothing and food drive December 1-28. We invite you to drop off new or gently used hats, mittens and boots for children up to age 12 at the Jackson Homestead, 527 Washington Street; and non-perishable food at the Durant-Kenrick House, 286 Waverley Avenue. Clothing will be donated to Cradles and Crayons, and the food will go to the Newton Food Pantry as part of a citywide Newton Food Drive. For more information, please call 617-796-1450.
