Who You're Helping

Want to know who will benefit from your efforts and donations?

Donated winter children's clothing will be delivered to Cambridge Children's Clothing Exchange. Adult clothing to go to CASPAR, On the Rise and the Harvard Square Homeless Shelter.

Food donations will stock the shelves at CEOC, St. Paul A.M.E, Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House, St. James Episcopal Church and others. Childrens' books will go to Reach Out and Read Programs at East Cambridge Health Center, Windsor Street Health Center, Cambridge Family Health in Porter Square, Cambridge Family Health Inman Square.

Fleece-blanket-makers at our last project learned new skills and made new friends
Your handmade blankets will warm folks at the YWCA Family Shelter and the Cambridge-Somerville Early Intervention program.

Handmade bookmarks will delight the clients at the Literacy Project at Cambridge Public Library and the Community Learning Center.

Handmade Holiday Day Cards will surprise and delight both elders served by Meals-on-Wheels as well as Cambridge veterans and service men and women who are stationed far from home.

And the emergency room activity kits will make family visits to Cambridge Hospital and Mt. Auburn Hospital a little less stressful for children waiting in the emergency rooms.

Thank you!
