What can we say about Valerie… She is an amazing donor who regularly reaches out to ask what our current needs are, then she shops! Last week, I posted that we needed paper towels and she showed up shortly after with her regular donations AND the paper towels I just said we needed. We are so thankful for all that Valerie does for our organization.
Cheryl Porzio stopped by the warehouse this morning with her donations for our Mother Day gift bag project. These donations will become part of the special bags that we will be gifting to local moms who are struggling.
Thank you Cheryl. Your donations are helping to bring joy to so many moms in the Merrimack Valley.
Rajib from the Chelmsford Sai Center stopped by this morning to drop off much needed diapers, deodorant, and body wash. These were items that we were in fear of running out of this week. These amazing community partners reached out and asked how they could help. We are so thankful for their continued support.
Oliver and Kelly Lucy, from Chelmsford Integrated Preschool PTO, stopped by the warehouse today with a generous donation of new socks! The school held a collection and were able to donate 425 pairs of new women’s, men’s, and children’s socks. These will become part of our Mother’s Day gift bags and also go out to our regular clients picking up clothing orders. Thank you Oliver, Kelly, and all of the CHIPS families!
Big thanks to Kenny from UPS for bringing us all of the donations sent in. Our delivery drivers have been working so hard this past year to get all of the items to the warehouse, so that we can get them to the people who need them.
A huge thank you goes out to Lisa Dibartolomeo! She not only dropped off donations for BITS Bags, but she also included a bag of beautiful, hand made baby blankets. Each blanket was wrapped up in a bow and included a matching hat as well as a hand written note card including the size of the blanket, what it’s made of, washing instructions, and hat size. We were so very excited to receive them and we can’t wait to include them in our newborn baskets and gift them to new moms.
Thank you Lisa for your bits donations, these beautiful blankets and hats, and all of the love and thoughtfulness that went into these gifts!
Thank you Molly, Will, and Katherine Gardner for the awesome donation of BITS Bags! We love seeing kids thinking of other kids and making sure that they all have access to these basic toys.
Thank you Lisa Tenczar and Dance Energy for the awesome donation of diaper bags and crib sheets. These were much needed items in the warehouse and will soon go out to new moms in our community.
Basic Items for Toddlers are being delivered!! Thank you to all of the generous donors who stopped by and who shipped to us this week. We are so thankful for all of these items.
But we’re not done yet! We still need new toys for these bags. If you’re able to donate these items, or complete bags, you can drop off at the warehouse Tuesday-Saturday 9-2:45.

Thank you for sharing with friends, family, neighbors, and online groups who may have items they wish to donate.
Thank you to Project Linus and The Knitting Ministry of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Bedford for answering our call for baby blankets! We received many beautiful blankets that were clearly made with so much love. These will soon make their way to our clients homes and be used to keep babies warm and happy.
