Earlier this month, Informationist Allison Gaines and Knowledgent Cares teamed up to host a housewarming gift basket-making party for Friends of Boston’s Homeless. The gathering was a huge success, with 150 items donated for the gift baskets!
The gift baskets, crafted right in our Boston office, will directly go to Friends of Boston’s Homeless, who give them to previously homeless individuals moving into their first home. They are filled with items anyone may need when moving into their first homes, including toiletries, bedding, cleaning supplies, dishware, and much more.
Friends of Boston’s Homeless (FOBH) is a 501(c)3 organization that supports individuals and families in the Boston area in finding affordable housing and a way to help them find stability. They support innovative, solution-oriented programs that help homeless individuals move beyond shelter to lead independent lives in the community.
“The event was a success – such a fun and unique way to give back to our community,” said Allison, the organizer of the event. “I am thankful for the remote involvement and am excited to be helping Friends of Boston’s Homeless! The smiling faces at the shelter when they saw our donations were truly unforgettable!”
