We're a group of 5 women from Boston, disheartened by a very hurtful and confusing year in our world, and joining together to give back to our community. We're starting with a drive for Rosie's Place, the oldest women's shelter in the United States, and right here in our hometown of Boston, MA.
Founded in 1974, Rosie's Place has a mission to provide a safe and nurturing environment that helps poor and homeless women maintain their dignity, seek opportunity and find security in their lives. Today, Rosie’s Place not only provides meals and shelter but also creates answers for 12,000 women a year through wide-ranging support, housing and education services. Rosie’s Place relies solely on the generous support of individuals, foundations and corporations and does not accept any city, state or federal funding. Thanks to these donations, 88 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to services for poor and homeless women.
We'll be collecting clothing and food items at our work places and homes over the next month until December 21st. We'll also be accepting monetary donations, which you can make here through our Crowdrise page, and will go straight to Rosie's Place.
Thank you for your support!
