The Cambridge Women’s Center, a supportive community space for all women, has been open since 1972. The holidays are especially difficult for the women we support. We serve women experiencing homelessness and those who are housing insecure, isolated, and in need of supplies and support. The needs of our community are staggering, as a small non-profit we need your help to support our community of women.


During this holiday season, we are seeking groups (friends, faith based communities, hobby clubs) to partner with us and run a donation drive in their community. Our drives this winter are aimed at collecting survival materials for the women we support at the center.


We will be coordinating several groups of donation drives: winter survival gear, women’s winter clothing & accessories, women’s products, PPE, and non-perishable foods.


If you are interested in this opportunity please contact Special Projects Coordinator Zoey Lieber at: zoeyll@bu.edu for more information. We look forward to hearing back from you and potentially working with you in the future!


Thank you,

CWC
