South Bay serves the community

Sara from South Bay Early Intervention picked up basic items for 4 families last week. They received diapers, baby wipes, clothing and coats. All essential items for our already struggling clients. Warm winter clothing and diapers are two of the most requested items at this time. We can’t keep clothes in stock sufficient to cover all the requests we receive. The minute a clothing bin gets filled, Lori pulls another client order and empties the bin all over again. Right now we need Size 3T/4T Pull Ups, Size 4T/5T Pull Ups, Size 4 Diapers, Women’s Size M and L long sleeve shirts, Men’s long sleeve shirts all sizes, safety gates, infant swings, pack and play sheets and diaper bags for our clients with infants. If you have any of these items to donate you can drop off Tuesday and Wednesday this week 9-2:30pm, no appointment necessary. If you are donating mattress sets please call first to make sure we have the space or email donategoods@thewishproject.org. The warehouse will be closed Thursday-Saturday for Thanksgiving. If you prefer to shop online we have an Amazon wish list where you can purchase our most needed items and ship direct to us https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/D0WB109LX427… . Thank you for sharing this with friends, family, neighbors and online groups that might have some basic items to spare!

A grateful client

One client picked up basic items for her family today. She received clothing for her child, diapers, baby wipes and a safety gate. We are grateful to all our awesome donors who have dropped off clothing, shared our posts and donated from our Amazon wish list. Without all your help it would never be possible to provide clothing to all the clients and partner agencies who request our assistance every year from Greater Lowell and Merrimack Valley.
