My son's Cub Scout den is working on their citizenship badge. The boys decided they wanted to do a winter wear coat/mitten/hata drive specifically to help homeless kids.
I've been assigned with finding agencies or shelters which specifically help families and kids.
Because we live in the northeast Merrimack Valley, almost in NH, I'm not thoroughly familiar with a lot of shelters around the city. I know of HAWC in Salem, and someone mentioned there is a family shelter in Lowell, but there is no trace of it on the internet.
So I am turning to you, my dear friends at Universal Hub.
If anyone has any suggestions or knows of shelters specific to children, please respond to this post or feel free to email me at [email protected]
We'd like to keep our sites set on North of Boston/NH/Merrimack Valley simply because one of the goals is to have the boys focus locally, being well aware that their behavior and efforts will directly impact their immediate surroundings. However, realizing that there is probably more of a need towards Boston, I'm broadening our scope to include anyone anywhere who has a need.
our den thanks you for your guidance and support.
