WHOSE HELP IS REQUIRED
Moving Home Drives don't need to be completed by one person. A family, a group of friends, colleagues, religious group or club/organization can sponsor a woman together, and each person can buy an item off her list!
HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
When a woman moves into a new apartment it can be a scary and difficult change to make.
Because of you and your willingness to buy basic household items, you are helping her transition go a lot smoother. With that added stress off her back, she can continue to work on the challenges that she faces, but she won't have to worry about having basic needs at home.
You will have already turned her house into a home.
You can coordinate a drive to collect basic household items for a woman as she moves into her new apartment. With your help, she can get settled a little more quickly and continue to work on the challenges that surround her.
New items only.
All items are basic household items (no furniture).
Examples of items include: comforters, sheets, shower curtains, lamps, etc.
We typically ask that completed drives be delivered to 341 Broadway, Cambridge within 3 weeks, but our Development Associate, Maddie Porter, is happy to work with your schedule if that time doesn't work.
