December 15, 2015 -Springfield, MA- Members of Hampden District Attorney Anthony D. Gulluni’s Office are playing Santa Claus this holiday season by providing gifts for sixty-four needy children. In partnership with Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (MSPCC), members of the DA’s office adopt the children and shop for gifts that will be delivered to the kids on Christmas. This year members of the office have donated over $10,000 in gifts, which will help brighten Christmas morning for children who might not otherwise have gifts to unwrap.
Hampden District Attorney Anthony D. Gulluni stated, “I am so proud of the many members of my staff who have stepped forward and exhibited such generosity for these kids. The kids involved in this initiative come from some difficult circumstances and this helps to give them a joyful experience during the holiday season. ”
The gifts collected will be picked up by the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children and distributed by clinicians assigned to the children. The District Attorney’s Office is given a “wish list” of the adopted children to assist them in buying gifts.
