PBHA launches holiday gift drive

1 min read

Phillips Brooks House (PBH) has launched Harvard’s annual holiday gift drive — an effort to collect more than 1,000 gifts for children in Boston and Cambridge. The drive, which will run through Dec. 15, will provide books, games, toys, art supplies, and sports equipment to children, many of whose parents are impoverished, incarcerated, or homeless. Last year, PBH donated approximately 1,500 gifts to 18 agencies in Allston-Brighton, Boston, Cambridge, Dorchester, and Roxbury. Faculty, staff, and students are invited to donate gifts for children of all ages. Gifts must be new and unwrapped.

In addition to gifts, PBH will accept gently used or new clothing items on behalf of the Harvard Square Homeless Shelter. Donations can be left in marked receptacles on the first floor of PBH.
