For decades, Concord Prison Outreach has sponsored the Holiday Gift Bag Project, providing a bag of simple, useful gifts to each incarcerated man in Concord’s two state prisons. Each bag contains toiletries, writing materials, and a greeting card. December is a dark time of year, and being in prison during the holiday season can be challenging. Each gift bag is a reminder that there are people “outside the walls” who think of their incarcerated neighbors and wish them a better future, both while they are in prison and after release.
Volunteers Needed: For the 2023 season, we will work at five different churches starting mid-September. These locations include First Parish of Groton, First Parish of Sudbury, First Parish in Concord, Harvard Unitarian Universalist Church, and Congregational Church of Littleton. We will need volunteers at all five locations for different time slots throughout the day.
This is an excellent opportunity for those looking to get involved and give back this holiday season! For more information and to register for a time slot to volunteer, please click here.
