Newton's Holiday Gift Drive

Support a great cause - and local businesses!

Once again the Charles River Regional Chamber is supporting Newton’s annual Holiday Gift Drive in partnership with The Village Bank, the City of Newton Dept. of Health and Human Services and Newton Rotary.

Coordinated by the chamber’s Young Professionals Group, here are a few ways you can support Newton families – and our local businesses:

networking event
Attend our year-end networking event

Join us for our last in-person networking event of the year Tues Dec. 5, 5:30-7 p.m. at Paddy's Pub in West Newton. We’ll have light refreshments (cash bar) and a chance to connect with area professionals as we get in the spirit of the season. Bring an unwrapped toy (newborn to age 10) or a $20 donation as the price of admission.

Make an online donation

100% of donations collected via this online donation portal will be used to purchase gifts from Newton merchants to support the toy drive. No amount is too big or too small.

support local

Head to Henry Bear's Park (28 Austin Street in Newtonville) or Just Next Door Cards & Gifts (327 Auburn Street in Auburndale) to pick up toys and gifts (for ages newborn to 10) – there’ll be collection boxes at both stores for the Holiday Gift Drive as well as at all Village Bank branch locations.
