Holiday Program seeks cheer-makers for needy kids


Kukene said the program has already heard from a lot of volunteers interested in donating gifts, and said she’s always amazed by the way Amesbury rallies to help those in need.

“This community is amazing with their generosity,” Kukene said. “We’ve had a huge response as far as families in need this year, so we’re very grateful to the community.”

Anyone interested in helping with the effort should contact Kukene at 978-388-0626 or email
