June 2022 - We Care Wednesday

It's June and you know what that means, Happy Pride! gather here is proudly queer-owned and thrilled to employ a number of LGBTQ+ folx. In May we received a fundraiser donation request and we countered with, "why not be our We Care Wednesday recipient for June?" We're excited to share that The Network/LA Red, a Boston-based nonprofit that works to end partner abuse and support survivors in LGBTQ+, polyamorous, and kink communities is our June recipient. From Miriam, the grassroots fundraising coordinator for The Network/LA Red, "The funds make a huge difference and being visible in community spaces does, too....

MAY 2022 WE CARE WEDNESDAY

(this particular blog post was written by gather here's founder, Virginia B. Johnson.) While watching the livestream of the 2022 MetGala on Monday, May 2, 2022 my breaking news alert went off and the headline, "Supreme Court poised to strike down Roe v. Wade..." popped up on my screen. I clicked the link and stopped paying attention to fashions' take on "The Gilded Age" instead reading in dread the news that I suppose I knew all along was coming.

APRIL 2022 WE CARE WEDNESDAY

A few months ago a nurse from Riverside Community Care reached out to us to inquire if we would be willing to donate our machine repair services to cleaning and oiling a machine donated to a refugee family.

RCC is a community-based non-profit organization serving more than 40,000 people a year in Massachusetts,...

March 2022 We Care Wednesday

We struggled selecting the March We Care Wednesday recipient. Current events have been overwhelming, at home and abroad. In light of the nearly 200 anti-LGBTQ bills across the country, most of which specifically target transgender and nonbinary youth, we decided to put our fundraising efforts towards supporting LGBTQ+ youth in Greater Boston. Greater Boston PFLAG's mission is to advocate for and advance equity and societal affirmation of LGBTQ+ people by building and strengthening loving families, safe communities, and a diverse and inclusive society. Greater Boston PFLAG offers help for LGBTQ+ youth, their families and communities around the topic of sexual orientation...

FEBRUARY 2022 WE CARE WEDNESDAY

For the last five years, Mayor Siddiqui and Vice Mayor Mallon have organized a sock drive for CASPAR/Bay Cove. Mayor Siddiqui and Vice-Mayor Mallon started the sock drive in 2018 after witnessing firsthand the critical need for wool socks during their visit at the CASPAR/Bay Cove Shelter at 240 Albany Street. They hope to gather 2,500 pairs of wool socks this February. In an effort to support this initiative we are not only asking the community to donate directly to CASPAR but to also knit wool socks or purchase a pair (or two or more) of wool socks from a...
