The House of the Seven Gables is a drop-off location for the 12th annual It Starts With Me! Thanksgiving Drive. The following non-perishable goods can be dropped off at our Visitor Center November 1 – 22, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily:

  • Gravy
  • Roasting tins
  • Stuffing
  • Canned vegetables
  • Bottled juice
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Cooking oil
  • And gift cards to Market Basket that will be used to purchase turkeys and other perishable goods

This year, It Starts With Me! has the lofty goal of providing 500 area families with a complete Thanksgiving meal. If you’d like to support from afar, consider using and select The House of the Seven Gables Settlement Association — you’ll be helping two organizations at once!

Please be sure to ask someone from Guest Services for your 10 percent-off coupon for our Museum Store as a small token of our appreciation for your support.
