Each year for more than 70 years now the T&G Santa has helped millions of under-privileged children have a Christmas gift under the tree, who may not have had one otherwise. On the two days after Thanksgiving (11/29 and 11/30) we kick off the fund drive by sending T&G Santa Helpers out to various store front locations to sell newspapers of which all proceeds go to the T&G Santa Fund.
Would you like to help? Call 508 793 9246 Perhaps you or a family member would like to earn a little extra spending cash for this holiday season? Here's a great way to do that, while also experiencing firsthand the generosity of the community.
We will pay $25 per day to a T&G Santa Helper that sells newspapers and collects donations at a location from about 8:00am – 12:00 noon. If a youth wants to work at one location with a friend we will pay each Helper $15 per day. It’s also a great opportunity for students to log community service hours needed for various programs at school.
Here's how it works:
T&G Santa Helpers arrive at the Millbury T&G Office on Route 20 in Millbury about 8:00am to pick up newspapers and T&G Santa aprons.
Then the T&G Santa Helpers go to their predetermined store front location and sell newspapers to customers. Some people will donate to the T&G Santa more than the cost of the newspaper, and possibly not even take the newspaper. That is okay too!
Then after about 4 hours on location, take the unsold newspapers and the donations back to the Millbury T&G Office on Route 20 in Millbury where you will be greeted by someone who will receive the donations and pay the T&G Santa Helper for the day.
It's as simple as that!
