What Is Middlesex County Christmas Friends?

Christmas Friends Inc. is a 100% volunteer organization providing Christmas gifts for needy children and senior adults in Middlesex County. It is operated through the Southside Sentinel, Middlesex County’s weekly newspaper, and the Middlesex Department of Social Services.

All clients are screened and referred by Social Services and the program is unique in that each client must submit a “wish list” to Christmas Friends. Shoppers take the list and use donated funds to select toys and clothing for children and clothing or household items for seniors. More volunteers wrap and deliver the gifts. Last year over 170 area citizens were involved as volunteers and many, many more donated funds.

For 35 years folks in this community have been donating, shopping, wrapping and delivering gifts to the needy through Christmas Friends, said Fred Gaskins, President, and there are countless times where friends, neighbors and other organizations help each other. “When it comes to sharing ‘The Love,’ Middlesex County folks do it right!” he said.
