Board member Sue Smith picked up hats for House of Hope Inc. today. We are grateful to all our generous donors who donate warm winter items for our clients during the cold winter months. There are few things more basic than needing warm clothing. We know the clients that receive them will be very grateful for the extra layer of warmth.
Darci, a social worker from Greenhalge Elementary School, picked up 30 headphones and 10 pair of gloves for some of their students. These headphones have become essential items for students participating in remote learning. We are grateful to our donors that have helped us to provide these basic items to so many students this school year.
Carmen from Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children picked up basic items for babies today. She received diapers and other baby gear for infants. These caseworkers are always so grateful for everything we can give them for their already struggling clients. So many single moms feeling isolated and overwhelmed due to COVID. We are lucky to have our generous donors to help them in any way we can.
Executive Director Alyce Moore highlights some of the dozens of auction items that we have so far for our upcoming Winter “Open Your Heart” Gala auction taking place online 2/8-2/11 in time for gifting for your favorite Valentine. Take a look!
Thank you to all our donors who drop off the basic items we need and ask for. We could never help all the clients we do without the generosity of all our donors and supporters.
Grace poses with two of the dozens of auction items for our Winter Wishes “Open Your Heart” Auction. Perfect for a fan of our hometown heroes, both Boston Red Sox and a Patriots basket. We are still accepting donations for auction items or sponsorships. Contact Grace at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Steve and Gloria are two of our terrific Tuesday volunteers. Steve can be found making kitchen kits for clients or accepting donations at the dock. Gloria can be found sorting and organizing incoming donations with Dianne or filling the client clothing bins. Both are willing to jump in where ever they are needed and we are grateful for their help.
It was a busy day at the dock on Saturday. All of these donations came with 2 sets of donors. Rachel and Jess, on the left, are 2 Wilmington High School students who collected donations. On the right the Moore family and their donations. We are grateful for the support of so many in our community to help their neighbors in need.
One client picked up basic items today. She received a dresser and clothing, essential items for our already struggling families. Thank you to our donors who provide us with the items our clients need. Right now we are in need of toasters, microwaves, sauce pots, paper towels, disposable masks for clients with COVID, disinfectant spray and diaper bags. If you have any of these items and can drop off at the warehouse our donation hours are Tuesday-Saturday 9-2:45pm. If you prefer to shop online we have an Amazon wish list where you can shop from home and ship direct to us. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/D0WB109LX427…. Thank you for helping us provide our clients with basic items.
Gloria is one of our wonderful weekly volunteers. Typically she spends her time sorting and organizing incoming donations and then filling the client clothing bins for the days clients. We are so lucky to have the committed volunteers we have. They know our limitations of how many people we are allowed to have in the building so they all just do the work of 10 people each! Thanks Gloria!
