Turning Point, a special program division of Wareham Area
Committee for the Homeless (WACH), is looking for the public’s help to ensure every area child
enjoys the Magic of the Holidays. 
Turning Point’s “Holiday Magic” Outreach Program provides clothing and gifts to those that qualify
for assistance from the towns of Wareham, Buzzards Bay, Carver, Marion, Mattapoisett,
Middleboro, and Rochester. Last season, more than 560 children were provided with some holiday magic
as a result of the whole community coming together from local businesses and individuals to senior
citizens and middle and high school student volunteers.  Turning Point is again looking for the
public’s assistance to ensure the Magic continues this year.
There are many ways to help Turning Point this season - sponsor a child or family, donate to one of
the toy drive locations, volunteer time, or send a product or financial donation to the organization. 
Turning Point is a volunteer-operated organization, and the holiday program is no exception.
An important part of the Holiday Outreach Program is its sponsors. Sponsors adopt a child or
family and are provided a list of the child’s needs and wishes.  Sponsors are asked to provide as
many items as they are able.  Turning Point will supplement any additional needs through other
donations secured through other efforts.
Turning Point is honored to be able to partner with the following giving events this season:
The Wareham Transportation Department will be sponsoring a “Stuff-A-Bus” event on
December 3 from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Main Street in the parking lot next to the
Wareham Fire Station.
The Wareham Police Association will be holding its annual “Stuff-a-Cruiser” on December 3
from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Wareham Target and Wareham Walmart.  
If you are interested in sponsoring, volunteering, making a donation, in need of assistance, or need
additional information, please contact
The Wareham Area Committee for the Homeless (WACH), a 501c3 nonprofit organization
d/b/a/Turning Point, serves homeless and near homeless people in the communities of Wareham,
