Sign ups are now open for families & groups interested in helping make the holidays bright for local families in need!
The holidays provide the perfect opportunity to instill the importance of helping others to your children. For the past several holidays, TMC Cares has matched generous TMC members with mothers who are part of Fina House, a transitional living program at the YWCA of Northeastern Massachusetts. Fina House was established in 2005 to expand critically needed housing opportunities and social services for some of the most vulnerable women and families in our community: survivors of domestic and/or sexual violence and their children and homeless teen pregnant or parenting mothers. The mothers at Fina House have fallen on very difficult times and are working hard to overcome adversity. We want these moms to know that someone cares. Every year we receive feedback that the kindness, generosity and thoughtfulness of the TMC members in selecting gifts and writing notes of encouragement truly make the holidays for these women and their children.
This wonderful non-profit once again needs our support and compassion this holiday season. We would like to purchase gifts for the 17 mothers currently in the YWCA program. The women will make a small wish list with items they would appreciate, most of which are essentials. Examples of wishes from previous years include hats, robes, slippers, kitchen essentials, blankets and makeup. We will also try to provide items for their children as well.
TMC Cares needs your help to fulfill these wishes! You can request to be matched with a mom, child, family, or purchase individual items from a wish list. This is also an excellent opportunity to include your children and share with the spirit of giving. They can help you plan and purchase the gifts, assemble the gift bags or even write notes and decorate cards for the families.
