Miscoe Sixth Graders Hope To Bring A Little Holiday Joy To A Mendon Family this Holiday Season


Two Miscoe Hill Students are collecting for a local Mendon Family going through a difficult time this holiday season. Elicia Newton and Julia Stewart are hoping you can find it in your hearts to help out this family. They do have permission from the family to share the information below.


Hello, our names are Elicia Newton and Julia Stewart and we are hoping to make this holiday season a memorable one for a local Mendon Family this year. We will be taking collections for the HOFF FAMILY and would greatly appreciate any/all donations.

The Family Dynamics: Dad, Mom, Daughter (14yrs) NIPMUC, Daughter (11yrs) MISCOE and Son (5yrs) CLOUGH.

Brief Synopsis:  The mom has been sick for over two years.  She currently flies out-of-state monthly for treatments. There has been no improvement in her condition as of yet.  The mom’s medical condition leaves her physically exhausted and most of the time unable to do the things she could in the past, cook, clean, transport the kids, etc. The dad has taken on all the responsibilities of the family and the role of caretaker of his wife.  As a result of the mom’s medical condition, this family is now in the process of incurring additional costs as they are looking for a nanny to help them out for 3-4 hours each day.

Suggested Items:

Monetary donations (for school high school band trip, medical bills, prescriptions, travel expenses, and maybe even a small family vacation to brighten up the spirit of this family during this difficult time)

Gift Certificates: Target, Walmart, Old Navy Gift Card, GAP Gift Card, Restaurant Gift Card, Grocery Store Gift Card, TOYS R US Gift Card, ITUNES Gift Card, Gas Cards, CVS Pharmacy gift card etc.

Please note no donation is too small.

Please mail or drop off donations to:

3 Resthaven Road, Mendon MA 01756.

If you would like to call to schedule the drop off of your donation, please call 508-282-6212.

Please note donations will be accepted daily from 8am to 9pm from today through December 15th.  We would like to present the Hoffs with the collection on December 16th.

Thank you in advance for your assistance in making this a Hoff holiday season to remember.
