December 2022 - We Care Wednesday

Can't believe we are in the final month of 2022 and our last We Care Wednesday for the year.

We really appreciate when organizations reach out to see if they might be a good fit for our We Care Wednesday initiative. Our annual raffle/donation budget is limited and over the years we've found that we can make a bigger impact through this monthly campaign. Aaron Steinberg, Communications and Development Coordinator from Prisoners' Legal Services of Massachusetts emailed this summer, "As the sole statewide legal services provider for over 13,000 incarcerated people in Massachusetts, our small organization carries a lot of weight, and your support would mean a great deal!" Prisoners' Legal Services of Massachusetts's mission is to challenge the...
