For the past few years, Bristol Community College’s Holiday Cheer Gift Drive and the generosity of the college community have made holiday wishes come true for hundreds of children of Bristol students.

Last year, in 2021, nearly 100 members of Bristol’s college community donated approximately $9,000 worth of toys and clothes, resulting in gifts for more than 250 children. This year the college expects to see similar numbers.

The successful gift drive, organized by Bristol’s Student & Family Engagement department, matches the college’s students with donors, who purchase items from the student’s wish list on, that are shipped directly to the families. Donors who include faculty, staff, board members, alumni and students are asked to make a minimum commitment of $35 per child to allow gifts to be sent to homes with free shipping.
