Valentine's Day Bags for residents at the
Caritas Holbrook Ave House
The Holbrook Ave. Caritas House located in our community presently has 19 residents. Our club members donated suggested items and our Community Service members assembled 19 canvas tote bags containing comforting and helpful winter items for each of them as a special Valentine treat. The totes contained fleece throws, socks/slippers, mugs, b0xes of hot chocolate, microwave popcorn, playing cards, candied conversational hearts and laundry pods. We have also donated a bookcase for their common room and are filling the shelves with book donations from our members. We hope these small gestures can help our neighbors feel special. Please see our November 2022 newsletter for more information about the Caritas Housing Program. , , , , ,, ,
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. For the second consecutive year, the Braintree Women's Club collaborated with the Braintree Alliance for Safe and Healthy Youth (BASHY) and Braintree students in collecting donations of necessities for Women's Shelters in the community. We applaud their good work and were happy to be a part of this program. * * * * * *
