Visit to Shelter, Inc. in Boston

Today, I visited Shelter, Inc., which provides housing options and other supportive services to homeless families, to discuss whether and what magazines would be helpful.

I didn’t want to go empty handed, so brought along magazines that I have already collected, including a wonderful donation of National Geographic kids.

The staff were thrilled with the magazines and they gave me a list of all the family homeless shelters in Boston (of course, I wish none were needed), and some more ideas to follow-up on.

There is a wonderful organization, Cradles to Crayons, that provides children with everyday supplies such as clothing, shoes, books, school supplies, and toys.

They also suggested that I contact ReadBoston.
