PBH launches gift drive for area children

The Phillips Brooks House (PBH) launched its annual holiday gift drive on Dec. 3 in an effort to collect hundreds of gifts for children in Boston and Cambridge. Running through Dec. 14, the drive will provide books, games, toys, art supplies, and sports equipment to children whose parents are impoverished, incarcerated, or homeless. Last year, PBH donated more than 1,000 gifts to a dozen agencies in neighborhoods throughout Greater Boston.

Faculty and staff are invited to donate new, unwrapped gifts for children in preschool through middle school. Collection boxes will be located at PBH, the Harvard News Office (10th floor of the Holyoke Center), the Memorial Church, and at other locations throughout campus.
