HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

We serve patients seeking medical care at some of Boston's best hospitals. They often come to Boston seeking care because they have serious illnesses or are receiving very special treatment. This can be a very hard time in their lives. Some of our guests come from areas in which they have never seen snow. The cold of the winter can add to their stress. Adding that extra warm cozy gift can make a big difference.
