Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Will benefit Malden families in need


  The Merry Malden Holiday Drive is kicking off this month for the second year in a row. “Merry Malden” is a collaborative effort to spread cheer and help Maldonians in a season of great need. Founded last year in response to the pandemic and coordinated by numerous community groups and city departments, the Merry Malden holiday drive aims to match families in need of help with community members ready to pitch in and give. It starts this week and will continue through December.

  Any Malden resident needing assistance with toys, winter clothing or gift cards this holiday season should email MerryMalden2021@gmail.com with as much information as possible, including sizes and ages of recipients, and organizers will match each request with a sponsor. All donations are confidential and anonymous.

  Community members or local organizations looking to donate money, gifts, clothing or time delivering presents can email Merry Malden starting now, and they will be matched with a need to support. Delivery drivers, shoppers and donors are all needed to make Merry Malden a success!

  The deadline to request help this year is Sunday, Dec. 12. Wrapped gifts will be distributed the weekend of December 18 and 19. For more information or questions, please contact Ward 3 Councillor Amanda Linehan at 781-873-9224 or alinehan@cityofmalden.org.
