Buy Greenery and Support Toys For Local Children Program

The kids helping kids program is now in its 28th year.

 

Toys For Local Children is a 28-year-old program that has established a tradition of kids helping kids.

Swampscott school kids — from all the district schools — chip in to make sure area kids who might not otherwise receive holiday gifts receive them.

It was started in 1984 by teacher Allen Shapiro who wanted to make sure no local child went without a gift.

Cathy Kalpin of Clarke School says it is a unique service program in that every school in the district contributes to it.

Swampscott High School students typically get the holiday program rolling by shopping for gifts, selecting them for children and wrapping them.

The children are excited to receive a small doll or a card game, she said.

Many of the children that the program helps live in Lynn, and a sizable number also live in Swampscott.

Help goes out to around 1,000 kids.

The program accept donations from local citizens or businesses, and it has just started its first fundraising effort by selling holiday greenery.  

The order form is below:
