Due to the impact of COVID-19 the NHHA made significant changes to the Holiday Outreach programs. For the safety of all, we combined out Thanksgiving and Christmas distribution into a single, drive-through event on November 21st.
The mission of Northborough Helping Hands Association (NHHA) is to coordinate programs to assist those in need in the form of Thanksgiving food baskets, Christmas gifts, clothing, medical equipment, and emergency aid for special services.
NHHA was formerly known as the Northborough District Nurse Association and has been assisting Northborough individuals and families in need since 1920. We work closely with other town agencies, businesses and organizations to meet our goals.
Backpack Drive New backpacks filled with grade-appropriate school supplies are distributed to Northborough students in need, grades K-12 to begin a new school year.
Emergency Fund Emergency money for medicine, heat (oil/gas/electric) or other needs is provided as deemed necessary. Requests must be made through the appropriate social service programs.
