You may be familiar with our annual Teddy Bear Drive during the holiday season when our shop window displays are overrun by teddy bears donated by our generous customers, dealers and friends.
The Teddy Bear Drive was created in 2006 by our shop owner's daughter, Melissa Carboni, in loving memory of her sister, Jill Carboni, who lost her life in a car accident on November 27, 2005. Jill was always striving to make a difference and her contagious kindness, compassion and love inspired Melissa to begin the Teddy Bear Drive to honor children who have faced loss and illness. With the goal of helping to make the world brighter for children in need of the comfort of a teddy bear, over the years thousands of stuffed animals have been provided to organizations including Childrens Hospital Boston, The Jimmy Fund Clinic, Toys for Tots and many more.
Holliston Antiques is proud to support this on-going fundraising effort in Jill's honor.
