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.
A family stopped by the warehouse today to pick up clothing, mattresses, bed frames, bedding and Lori was sure to send them off with cuddle bundles for all 4 of their children. We love seeing happy families leave the warehouse!
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.
A carload of BITS Bag items collected by Lawrence Academy student Emmy Beauvais was delivered to the warehouse today. Emmy has been working on supporting project after project at The Wish Project this year and we are so thankful for all her hard work. Dedicated volunteers, like Emmy, are what keeps our organization going.
If you are interested in volunteering on one of our offsite projects, please email email@example.com
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!
The Tuesday team! Jack and Steve come in every Tuesday to sort through the house wares and kitchen donations. They are responsible for making up all of the household kits that we give out to clients moving into new homes. Rob is here every Tuesday afternoon to accept your donations at the donation dock. We are so lucky to have such an awesome team of dedicated, regular volunteers! (Not pictured- Mel and Mike who also work the donation dock and help with all sorts of other warehouse tasks)
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 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.
