For the past 28 years, hundreds of Southampton residents have picked up a Holiday Star that are generously displayed at local businesses and churches. Each star has an item that is being requested to be donated i.e., Boy 8 – toy or Girl 2 – toy.
The unwrapped gifts can be returned to the First Presbyterian Church at 2 South Main Street, Monday-Friday from 9AM-3PM. Please return the gifts by December 10th. The following week, Heart of the Hamptons staff and volunteers will distribute the gifts to local families in need.
In years past, we have provided toys to more than 1,000 local people. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have welcomed 801 new families to our food pantry. Given this increase in demand, we imagine we will distribute more gifts than ever before!
If you are not able to pick up a star, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can send you a virtual star!

• 27 Hampton Salon
