Hillcrest Educational Centers’ 2011 Holiday Wish Program is now underway. The Hillcrest Holiday Wish Program provides gifts for the 150 special-needs children in their care, many who are unable to spend the holidays with their family, or in some cases, the child may not have a family.
Hillcrest President Gerard Burke said, “Even during tough economic and personal times, it is important not to forget these kids who are less fortunate. Right now we have nearly 20 businesses and community groups sponsoring gifts. Berkshire County does a tremendous job in helping these special children and we appreciate it very much.”
There are 3 ways to support the Holiday Wish Program:
- Each child fills out a wish list of 6 gifts, each wish at $25.00 or less. Each gift is then tagged and placed on a tree located at various Berkshire County businesses and the Hillcrest administrative offices, at 788 South Street in Pittsfield. If you select a tag, Hillcrest asks that the gift is purchased and returned to the designated location by Tuesday, December 20.
- Purchase a general gift for any child and Hillcrest will assign it to a child based on need. The list of general items includes: sports balls and equipment; backpacks; arts and crafts supplies; gift cards; and winter hats and gloves.
- Make a donation and mail it to: Hillcrest Holiday Wish Program; Hillcrest Educational Centers; 788 South Street; Pittsfield, MA 01201.
