FAN Events Calendar 

FAN organizes many fun events geared towards young children and families.  Some of our events showcase local children's entertainment, some help us celebrate holidays, and some are for just for parents. We also collaborate with other community organizations to produce several events that teach our children the importance of giving to others and allow us to connect with our community in meaningful ways.

    Hello FAN and Winchester Community!

    For the 6th year in a row, FAN will be participating in a community project in support of Family Volunteer Day on Saturday, November 16th. With the help of our friends at the First Congregational Church and Studio on the Common as well as our sponsors Waterfield Sotheby's International Realty and DermPhysicians of New England, we will be donating Thanksgiving food baskets to families served through the Woburn Council of Social Concern.  Your donation will directly benefit a family in our community and communities nearby.  All baskets will be given to Woburn’s Council of Social Concern which serves over 400 households in Winchester and Woburn.   

    FAN’s Community Connection strives to (1) bring people together to reach towards a common goal (2) communicate with each other and (3) teach our children the importance of giving to others.  With these intentions in mind, we invite you to include your entire family in the collection process and donate a full or half Thanksgiving basket:

    How it Works:  You can sign up for a Half Basket (pick Share A or Share B) or a Full Basket (see the Full Basket Option).  Buy the items on the list for the basket that you sign up for.  Drop off the items at the Drive.  We also need volunteers to help make the drive run smoothly, so we would love it if you could join us!

    Where Should You Drop Off the Donations? Chidley Hall at First Congregational Church, 21 Church Street, Winchester

    When Should You Drop Off?  Saturday, November 16th, 9:30 am - 11:00 am

    A Few Reminders:  The Council coordinates this drive with a number of organizations, so asks that you buy only the items on the list (and do not substitute items).  However, there is no limit on donations, so please feel free to bring extra grocery gift cards for the donation basket!

    The List for Thanksgiving Full Basket can be found here
