People Bring Toys to Annual Trim a Tree Parties at Linden Ponds
Hingham, MA - People who live and work at Linden Ponds gathered together to collect toys for the Hingham Police and Fire Departments at the annual Trim a Tree Party in the Derby and Oakleaf Clubhouses. The Very Merry Dickens Carolers also performed.
"We are thrilled to be working directly with the Hingham Police and Fire Departments," said Christina Jones, Community Services Manager, Linden Ponds. "This is our annual Tree Trimming Event so we ask that everyone bring a toy and an ornament for the Linden Ponds holiday tree that represents their culture, religion, family and/or traditions. We collect hundreds of toys for Toys for Tots every year and come together as a community to decorate the trees."
During the tree trimming parties, people who live and work at Linden Ponds brought a new unwrapped toy to support the efforts of the Hingham Police and Fire Departments for their annual Toys for Tots Campaign sponsored by the United States Marine Corps.
Hingham Fire and Police Departments will accept the toys at Linden Ponds in a few weeks.
There is also a Festival of Trees on display decorated by the Linden Ponds Culture Squad.
