MHSA Holiday Drive 2023

Our 2023 Holiday Drive has ended for the year and we appreciate all the support we've received.

Please see below for the program kick-off letter we sent to supporters at the start of the holiday season. We appreciate you keeping our program in mind for the 2024 season. Feel free to contact us with any questions!

Dear Friend,

Thank you for your past support of Middlesex Human Services Agency and particularly our holiday gift drive. You have helped ensure that each year, hundreds of children in our care have a happy holiday, even as they cope with housing insecurity.

With sites throughout the Greater Boston region, MHSA provides safe and secure emergency shelter for more than 200 families experiencing homelessness each night. That means this holiday season, more than 500 children and their parents will be living at one of our shelters as we work toward helping each family find permanent housing.

By generously renewing your support for the holiday gift drive this year, you’ll bring an important experience of celebration, stability, and normalcy to these families. To empower the parents of children in our care, and reinforce family relationships, we prefer to provide parents with the resources to purchase the gifts their children want. Direct donations and gift cards are the best ways to support this effort and the families in our care.

Your contact for holiday fundraising this year will be Melissa Mills-Dick.  Melissa, a seasoned development professional, is working with us on a limited basis as we begin the search for a new director of development. In the coming weeks, she will be contacting you to discuss your philanthropic support. Please also feel free to reach out to her at

Again, thank you for supporting our clients this holiday season.
