The Braintree Community Task Force is hosting a food and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) drive as part of its Community Response and Assistance. Food donations will be given to the Marge Crispin Center for distribution and PPE items will be given to our First Responders (Police, Fire, EMS) In addition, the Marge Crispin Center is asking for donations for the children in our community such as new coloring books, board games, and story books.
The next drive will be held on Saturday April 25, 2020 from 10am to 12pm at Braintree Town Hall, 1 JFK Memorial Drive. Donations will be made through a drive up and drop off system. We will ensure that there is no direct contact between individuals bringing items for donation and those accepting items. Proper signage will be posted to direct vehicles through the drop off location. We are also using the tax collectors drop box for monetary and gift card donations. All checks should be made out to The Marge Crispin Center with a Memo note of “Task Force” on the check.
Please make sure all food and supplies are new with current dates.
