Hillcrest Educational Centers' 2015 Holiday Wish Program is now underway. The program provides gifts for the 150 special needs children in their care who are unable to spend the holidays with their family.

To participate, individuals, community groups or businesses can request Holiday Wish cards that have descriptions of the gifts the children have wished for the holidays.

Email holidaywish@hillcrestec.org or call Tim Gallagher at 413-499-7924, ext. 133, to have the cards delivered. The cost of all gifts should be kept at $25.

Monetary donations can be made online at https://hec2015holidaywish.eventbrite.com or by mail to Hillcrest Educational Centers, Attn: Tim Gallagher, 788 South St., Pittsfield, MA 01201.

As a guide, $150 sponsors one child's wish list, $25 will buy a gift, $10 will fill a child's stocking.
