The Phillips Brooks House has made an appropriation for the use of the Welfare Committee in providing 25 young men and boys of Cambridge and vicinity with needed and useful presents. These gifts are usually made every year at Thanksgiving and at Christmas.
This year the Cambridge Welfare Society has recommended the names of 25 needy youths together with the things of which they are most in need. The gifts will consist largely of articles of clothing and of tools, which are a necessity for some of the boys, to enable them to support themselves.
Instead of delivering the gifts to the various houses, as the custom has been in the past, the Welfare Committee will receive the boys at Phillips Brooks House and distribute the presents on next Thursday afternoon between 4 and 6 o'clock.
