Today was the last day of work for all the wonderful and kind people at Cradles to Crayons before they get a very well deserved one week break for the holidays. Mannam-Boston was lucky enough to be able to spend the morning with everyone, helping out in the Toy Factory. We cleaned toys and assembled ToyPacks for kids in need across Massachusetts.
Giving of your time to impact and make a difference in somebody else’s life is probably the best way to spend any morning. We are all looking forward to heading back to Cradles to Crayons in 2013.
The Toy Box in Hanover has very generously gotten involved with Santa’s Sandy Hands and MANNAM-Boston by offering the following:
This is a very kind offer, and MANNAM-Boston and Santa’s Sandy Hands are very grateful for their help and generosity.
So, this year do your Christmas gift and toy shopping at The Toy Box, and while you are there pick up a little something extra for those children whose lives have been devastated by Hurricane Sandy.

I quickly wanted to share some amazing news. This is the post from our Facebook page:
MASSIVELY AWESOME ANNOUNCEMENT:
We have been offered a small aircraft by Patient AirLift Services!!
If we can collect enough gifts to be donated to Hurricane Sandy victims through the “Santa’s Sandy Hands” Project, then they will fly everything down to New Jersey to be delivered! How amazing is that?! I am blown away by the generosity and kindness of people ♥

Santa’s Sandy Hands is a project that was recently started to collect gifts for children and families directly affected and displaced by Hurricane Sandy. These families have lost pretty much everything, and so the goal and purpose of Santa’s Sandy Hands is to spread some much needed love, joy and hope this holiday season.
For more information or to organize a drop-off/pick-up of gifts, please contact Katherine at 857-488-2741 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please spread the word to family and friends! Any gift, small or large, is welcome (anything you can manage, nothing is too small). Let’s spread some love, light, and hope this holiday season.
Together we can make a difference!
