SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY

The four tenets of the South Shore Women’s Business network are contacts, coaching, collaboration and COMMUNITY.    At in person events, our members generously donate raffle items as well as purchase raffle tickets to benefit our charitable contributions.  In addition, we’ve added an option to make a charitable contribution during the registration process.

During 4th Quarter, the SSWBN is teaming up with Wellspring Multiservice Center.   In November, Wellspring prioritizes a Thanksgiving meal program. Wellspring teams up with Paul Wahlberg and a Wahlberg family organization called Alma Cares, INC. Alma Cares concentrates on food insecurity and feeding the community. Paul donates 125 meal kits to Wellspring, who then distributes them accordingly to families in need. Wellspring generally helps more than 125 families during thanksgiving thanks to additional food donations. These Thanksgiving meals are distributed on “Turkey Tuesday” which is the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.

Food insecurity continues to be a problem for many in Hull and with high demand, Aunt Dot’s kitchen appreciates donations of non-perishable food items and toiletries. A list of the most needed products is on the website https://wellspringmultiservice.org/After Thanksgiving, Wellspring focuses on the holiday gift program.  Clients can register children under 18 to receive gifts. In mid-December, winter coats, hats, and gloves and mittens are allocated to families for each child. The parents then get a shopping ticket, that they take to the fire station to pick out additional Christmas gifts and toys. Wellspring also creates and distributes Christmas meal boxes to those clients who need them.  Go to Wellspring Multiservice Center’s website to learn more.

For 3rd quarter 2021, SSWBN was proud to support DOVE – Domestic Violence Ended.  You can learn more about supporting this wonderful organization on their website. 

 

 

Over the years, the Network has supported dozens of important causes and charities on the South Shore creating a lasting impact in our members’ communities.  We welcome our members’ recommendations for charities to support.  Please contact info@sswbn.org with your suggestion – we thank you for the opportunity to continue to positively impact the community.
