Thanks to the tremendous generosity of community members, individuals, businesses and organizations, East End House’s annual December Toy Drive and Adopt-a-Family Programs provided 182 families and over 500 children with toys, clothing, and basic necessities this holiday season. We could not have done this without you! For a full list of supporters visit us at http://conta.cc/2h9igDA.
East End House has been serving the needs of children, youth, individuals, and families in Cambridge and surrounding communities for more than 140 years. While much has changed since the agency first opened its doors, the inspiration we feel when witnessing the transformational impact East End House has on children and families in need has not.
Here is just one of their stories: http://conta.cc/2hOQQIa
Dear East End House Friends,
Over the past few days, East End House has been working with a core group of families impacted by the devastating fire last weekend in East Cambridge. In addition to losing their homes, many of these families lost all of their belongings-vehicles, driver's licenses, credit cards, medications, clothing, and other essential items. We have been working to connect these families to appropriate support services and City of Cambridge relief efforts, as well as to provide them with food, toiletry items, infant supplies, winter coats, mittens, shoes, clothing, transportation, gift cards, and other basic necessities.
Recovering from the devastating effects of the fire and the resulting dislocation-both physical and emotional-will be a long journey for these families. East End House is committed to supporting them on this journey as they regain stability and find housing.
Join East End House on Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and celebrate generosity worldwide. Giving Tuesday is a great way to give back in a way that is meaningful to you while kicking off the holiday gift-giving season. For ways you can give back, check out the flyer below.
