Town of Braintree Seal

The Braintree Community Task Force is hosting a food and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) drive as part of its Community Response and Assistance. Food donations will be given to the Marge Crispin Center for distribution and PPE items will be given to our First Responders (Police, Fire, EMS)

There are two donation drives scheduled. The first drive will be held on Thursday, March 26th from 10am to 12pm. The second drive will be held on Saturday, March 28 from 10am to 12pm at Braintree Town Hall, 1 JFK Memorial Drive. Donations will be made through a drive up and drop off system. We will ensure that there is no direct contact between individuals bringing items for donation and those accepting items. Proper signage will be posted to direct vehicles through the drop off location. We are also using the tax collectors drop box for monetary and gift card donations.
