…serving the Boston Asian American community.
Monthly Archives: October 2011
Ricesticks and Tea serves the low-income Boston area Asian community, providing culturally appropriate food staples that supplement what families are able to purchase in a linguistically accessible setting.
In the holiday spirit, we host an annual gift drive and holiday party for the kids, adults and seniors in the program. We need the help and support of friends, volunteers, and donors to ensure that we provide a gift to all of our families, approximately 300 gifts.
Gifts are intended to be small tokens, up to $20/person/gift. It is the thought that counts, and we want everyone to receive something. We will provide you with further details/criteria, and the name, gender and age of your “adoptee/s” so you can get an appropriate gift. Please consider:
- Adopting as many families, children, or seniors as you are comfortable doing and getting them a gifts
- Donating money so that we can buy the gifts or other supplies needed for the holiday party
- Donating money for general operating costs of the program to sustain it year round
In addition to collecting and distributing gifts and the normal food allocations, we serve food, sing holiday carols, and as a special treat Santa brings cheer and merriment to the holiday party.
Please let us know no later than Wednesday, November 30th if you can adopt a client and drop off the gift(s) by Wednesday, December 7th. Please contact us with any questions or to adopt a family @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for your participation and support.
