special collections

At various times throughout the year, special collections are taken up at various churches and companies

for items such as diapers and baby wipes; soap and shampoo; toilet paper; and food items.

school supply collections

Each summer, CFM collects backpacks and school supplies

to distribute to hundreds of school-age children before the start of school. 

holiday collections

The weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, turkeys with all the "fixings" are handed out to the clients. 

The same is done around Christmas if the donations are there. The turkeys are donated by local businesses and churches. 

annual christmas party

In early December, a Christ-centered Christmas Party is held for approximately 200 children. 

Children and their families enjoy a variety of crafts and other activities as well as goodies.

Also, the children from each family are able to select a piece of jewelry to gift to their mother.

At the end of party, each child receives a gift that has been donated by members of

Lutheran Church of The Savior, Bedford and Our Savior Lutheran Church, Topsfield.
