Volunteers sought to wrap gifts for youths
This year is no different. Volunteers are needed to help wrap toys and incoming donations — during a gift wrapping party beginning Friday at 6 p.m. in the Somersworth Fire Station at 195 Maple St.
"Once word gets out, people come running," Moore said.
"We're not going to turn anyone away," Moore said.
Moore said there's still time to donate toys, clothes or other items — especially for boys and girls ages 11 to 14. He added they still need clothes and gifts — like music gift cards and make up — for teenagers.
"We do roughly three gifts per kid," Moore said, adding they're pretty close to having enough presents, especially since an anonymous donor brought in "a bunch of iTunes gift cards."
"Together with local merchants and community members, we have made the holiday season brighter for many families. The enormous generosity of businesses, school organizations, civic groups and other community members has enabled us to help others in their time of need," according to a release by firefighters.
