The Attitude of Gratitude is how we arrived at the Giving Tree. It remains an important cornerstone of Darlene & Company to #GiveWhereYouLive. This will be our FIFTH Annual Giving Tree event. Since our first one in 2018 we have helped 14 moms & their children through the holidays at various difficult times in their lives!
This year we are shaking things up a bit. Time’s are a little tougher for everyone. They are tougher on my supporters and they are certainly tougher on people in need of assistance this season making sometimes even the simplest of necessities hard to obtain . Because of this we are going Back to Basics! We will be supporting Circle of Hope and have been tasked with providing “Winter Things” for women and children. We need allll the Mittens, Gloves, Hats, Scarves, Socks & Fuzzy Socks that we can get to warm these souls this winter!
Circle of Hope provides assistance for a WIDE range of people in need from women’s shelters, homeless shelters, hospitals and as direct as providing services for homeless kids in places such as Framingham High School and even Framingham State University & Umass Boston!
Please join us in donating whatever you can and make the holidays brighter for Circle of Hope’s families in need.
As a sprinkle of FUN this year we are doing an art contest for the kids in the families that donate to our program! Charity should always be fun and what better time to embrace that lesson than the Holiday Season?! When you make a drop off (or when I come to pick up) you can pick up a “mitten kit”. Decorate the mitten however you see fit, even its it’s things not in my little kit. When you are finished tag me on Instagram at @LoveWhereYouLiveRealtor with the hashtag #GiveWhereYouLive.
****For every child’s entry w/donation we will donate on additional winter item!****
As for all of those beautiful mittens!
