EASTON/DARTMOUTH — On Saturday, November 13, from 10 a.m. to noon, My Brother’s Keeper will be hosting a Pop Your Trunk Drive to collect new, unwrapped Christmas toys for local families in need. 

Those interested in participating in the drive are welcome to stop by our facility with their donation any week day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. as well.

Please join us for our Pop Your Trunk Toy Drive and help us bring the joy of Christmas to 3,000-plus local families in need. Bring unwrapped gifts to our drive-through locations and volunteers will gladly collect your donations with a pop of your trunk! 

This toy drive will support the organization’s local Christmas Assistance Program. Since 1990, My Brother’s Keeper has brought joy to kids and removed stress from parents who could not provide presents for their children at Christmas.

This past December, My Brother’s Keeper delivered personally-selected gifts to 3,150 families — more than 13,000 children and adults — living in 95 communities from the North Shore down to Fall River and Cape Cod. 

Many Christmas assistance programs only serve children under age 13, but in keeping with our mission, My Brother’s Keeper serves the whole family: children, teens, and parents. 

In addition to their presents, each family also receives a $50 supermarket gift card to help provide a special Christmas meal. 

Demand for assistance in our community remains very strong so the Christmas Toy Collection Drive will help My Brother’s Keeper provide as much assistance to families as possible. 

My Brother’s Keeper regularly purchases bikes, scooters, action figures, sporting goods, and skateboards so another way to support the Christmas Assistance Program is by making a financial donation online. Visit www.mybrotherskeeper.org for details. My Brother’s Keeper does not receive any local, state or federal funding, and relies on private donations to serve the community.
