This year for Black History Month, Core Cares is celebrating the history and accomplishments of the Black Community by making a commitment to work towards a better, more equitable future for everyone. Over the next month, Core Cares will be managing an ongoing service project that aims to support our community, particularly focusing on the Black, Latinx, and other underprivileged populations throughout Boston that face higher rates homelessness and marginalized access to public resources.
Donations have hit a low point in 2021 and organizations like the Pine Street Inn are struggling to provide and maintain support and supplies. Their staff and volunteers work hard to keep access available to housing and supplies for the homeless. Now it’s our turn to support them by making sure supplies are stocked and they have what they need to carry on. With your help we can show the community how much we care.
Below is a list of requested items and a link to an Amazon Wish List for streamlined donating.
We’ll be collecting items for individual care packages through March 12th, 2021. Please bring items to the Cushman & Wakefield office (383 Dorchester Ave, Ste 215. Boston, MA 02127) or CLICK HERE for our Pine Street Inn Amazon Wishlist and have it shipped to the Cushman & Wakefield office.
