Holiday Food and Gift Drive

It’s that time of year again.  The leaves have already fallen, the ground is beginning to harden, and the holidays are rapidly approaching.  This season the Newburyport Learning Enrichment Center is teaming up with Nourishing the North Shore for its 5th annual Bag a Turkey Fundraiser and Gift Drive which will be running through December 20th

Donations will provide holiday meals, daily essentials, and special gifts to families and children throughout Newburyport. 

Collection bins for non-perishable food items can be found at the Newburyport Rec Center, Newburyport Schools Superintendent’s Office, City Hall, and downtown at Glitterati and Dos Amigos.

Money donation containers will be on the countertops of many local stores throughout Newburyport.  We are accepting cash donations at the Newburyport Police Department, the YWCA, or the Newburyport Rec Center.  Please make checks payable to Newburyport Learning Enrichment Center.

Check out some photos of our helpers delivering the Thanksgiving food! 


Please join us at Dos Amigos on Wednesday, November 30th anytime to help us raise funds to feed our families this holiday season.  Dos Amigos will donate $1.00 for each burrito and $0.50 for each taco sold.  We hope you’re hungry!!!
