Wellesley's Day to Make a Difference will benefit My Sisters' Place!
Wellesley-in-Westchester is sponsoring an Essentials Drive to benefit clients of My Sisters' Place, a local non-profit organization which serves victims of domestic violence. Since 1976, My Sisters' Place (MSP) has worked to end violence in intimate relationships and to combat the effects of domestic violence and human trafficking on women, men, and children throughout Westchester County. MSP is a cutting edge leader and resource in the field of domestic violence advocacy, emergency shelter, legal services, education and prevention. MSP's Emergency Shelter provided housing to over 175 adults and children in 2017 alone.
On Sunday, April 8th, we will meet at Jamie Jensen's house to create "Welcome Bags" to help get those families living in the emergency shelter off to a new start. A representative from My Sisters' Place will be there to discuss the organization's mission, services and operations.
Here's how you can help:
- Donate full-size essentials now through Friday, April 6th: shampoo, conditioner, soap, deodorant, toothpaste and toothbrushes for adults and children, diapers of all sizes, wipes, instant hand sanitizing lotions, and children's socks and underwear.
