Sandy clothing drive

The Nashua Fire Fighters Association, in conjunction with their brothers from the Bloomfield, N.J., Fire Department, have organized a clothing drive for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

The association is in need of new or gently used clothing and towels for all ages, infants through adults.

The campaign will move quickly, according to its website, so donors are encouraged to drop off anything they can spare at Nashua Fire Rescue Station 5, 101 Pine Hill Road, by Friday.

Members also need help sorting, packaging and transporting the clothing from 1-5 p.m. Friday and 9-11 a.m. Saturday.

To help, volunteer or for more information, contact Rich at 548-7845 or fast
coach10@gmail.com.

Normal trash schedules

All curbside collections of recycling, soft yard wastes and trash will follow a normal schedule this week, the city announced.

The Four Hills Landfill/Nashua Recycling Center will be open for normal operation Monday through Saturday; however, the office at the landfill will be closed Monday.

In anticipation of high volumes of soft yard wastes, the Four Hills Landfill/Nashua Recycling Center will be open extended hours for residents on Saturdays, Nov. 17 and 24.

On those days, the scale will close at 12:45 p.m. and only residential soft yard waste, trash and recycling will be accepted.

No construction or demolition debris and no commercial waste will be accepted.

A valid residential permit is required to use the facility.

Busy sidewalks

In light of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, downtown merchants have scheduled a night of pampering on Main Street.

Downtown business owners will host their annual Ladies Night from 5:30-9 p.m. Thursday, bringing women shopping, cocktails and more.

Participating businesses include Beckonings, Burques Jewelers, Cardin Jewelers, DesignWares, Fresh of Nashua, Fortin Gage Flowers and Gifts, Ikebana, League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, Myoptic, Twill Fabric and Yarn, and Winenot.

Each store will offer different services and activities, such as mini-manicures, makeup applications, scarf tying demonstration, refreshments and cocktails.

Write the North Pole

Make-A-Wish and Macy’s kicked off their annual Believe Campaign, which raises funds for New Hampshire children through local letters to Santa Claus.

Macy’s will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to $1 million, for every stamped letter to Santa delivered to letter boxes in Macy’s stores across the country, including at the Pheasant Lane Mall.

The campaign will run through Christmas Eve.

People of all ages are encouraged to write a letter or form letter-writing campaigns at schools, churches and other community organizations.

On Dec. 14, for National Believe Day and as part of Wishes Across America, Macy’s and Make-A-Wish will grant dozens of wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. For more information, visit www.newhampshire.wish.org.
