Volunteers for the Brookline Center assemble the baskets each year as part of its Hand in Hand program and give them to those in need. Mark’s Moving donates labor and transportation to help the center move the baskets from the Brookline Teen Center where they are assembled to a storage area where they await distribution.
“We’re so happy to help with this incredible effort each year,” said Mark Silverman, president and CEO of Mark’s Moving. “The Brookline Center does a fantastic job coordinating this program and helping women in our communities.”
More than 100 volunteers helped prepare the baskets on April 27, stuffing them with gifts such as lotions, soaps, gift cards and candles.
“All of us experience times in our lives when we could use some extra support,” according to the Brookline Center. The Hand in Hand program helps “spread some love and remind women in need that they are surrounded by a community the cares.”
