Pilgrim Church is excited to launch a new event this holiday season. Carols and Cocoa for a Cause invites the community to gather around the “Mitten Tree” on Pilgrim’s front lawn on Saturday, Dec. 10 at 4 p.m. Please bring new warm winter gear or a new toy for a child to decorate the tree while enjoying a cup of cocoa and singing favorite carols. The event will last about 30 minutes and all donated items will go to support East End House in Cambridge and City Mission Boston. It’s an outstanding opportunity for the community to bring warmth and joy to those in need. All are invited and accommodations will be available for those less able-bodied. Weather-related updates will be posted on the Pilgrim website. Can’t make the event? Want to contribute? There will be a collection box next to the Pilgrim front doors.
