"Just wanted to thank you for your help with this family . . . They were so grateful. They wanted me to thank you on their behalf for such a generous gift. You really made her first place a home."
--MA Department of Children & Families
Womanade received this request from the Department of Children and Families:
"I have a mother and one child that, after waiting for a very long time living in a shelter, were finally able to obtain their very first apartment. They are in need of some help with some household items such as: pots, pans, dishes, silverware, toaster . . .. bed sheets, vacuum . . . all the things that will make them feel at home…Thank you again for your support throughout the years. You really help make a difference in these children’s and family’s lives."
Womanade provided gift cards to Walmart for the family to purchase the necessary household items.
