Thanksgiving Drive

The Thanksgiving Drive supplies families in need of assistance during the holiday with a full Thanksgiving meal. The Boosters Club donates all of the turkeys and the elementary schools help fill baskets with all the fixings. Youth & Recreation Services staff delivers these baskets the day before Thanksgiving.  Anyone wishing to donate goodies or who are seeking assistance should contact Molly Malandrino at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it  

2016 Thanksgiving Drive:  With the help and support of the community, we were able to provide 80 North Andover families with a full Thanksgiving meal for our 27th annual Thanksgiving Drive. A huge thank you to Molly Malandrino, our Delivery crew, the North Andover Booster Club, Franklin Elementary School, Kittredge Elementary School, Thomson Elementary School, Celia & John Brunette, the Trinitarian Church, North Andover School of Dance, Peter DiBenedetto, Core 4, Cindy Ward and Kathy O'Neill.

Holiday Gift Drive

The Youth Services Holiday Drive began in 1991 when it became evident that there was a need for assistance for some North Andover families at the holiday season.  We started servicing 12 children and that number has grown each year. Families are provided with a variety of gifts that include; clothing, games, toys, sports equipment, and more. Sponsors for this program come from schools, private businesses, individuals, and many local families.  Families who are serviced are required to fill out an application.  Anyone wishing to donate and “adopt” a child or family as well as any family seeking services from this program should contact Molly Malandrino at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it  

2016 Holiday Gift Drive:  Thanks to so many very kind donations, our community was able to provide gifts for 273 North Andover children this year! Our 85 sponsors consisted of families, businesses and Atkinson, Kittredge, Sargent and Thomson Elementary Schools. Your generosity has made the holiday season a special and memorable one for many. Our Holiday Gift Drive program could not have been successful without your participation.
