There are quite a few brands that I have partnered with over the years that not only do I really love sharing their new products, but I also love sharing the neat and good things that they do in our communities. I wanted to share with you Scotties recent involvement with The Pine Street Inn which in partnership with Scotties helped to house over 100 homeless people in Boston. These people are now living in permanent supportive housing thanks to the generosity of The Pine Street Inn. The Pine Street Inn is the largest resource for the homeless in the state of Massachusetts. They provide emergency shelters for the homeless, have street teams, they offer job placement programs as well as many other resources.
In a partnership with Scotties Facial Tissues, the new residents were welcomed into their new homes with comfort carepacks. In an effort to kick off 2017 with a worthy cause, Scotties provided each of the 100 residents with a queen-sized fleece blanket, warm slipper socks, a mug with hot cocoa and marshmallows, and of course boxes of soft Scotties tissues! These small gifts of comfort can be just what may be needed to turn a house into a home. For so many homeless people, who have not had a room of their own for a long time, this acted as one small step in their journey to a better life for themselves.
Maria, who has lived in her beautiful home for the last three months was previously homeless. She has made her home her own by beautifully decorating it in the style of her native home, Columbia. She is eager to put the Scotties blanket to use this winter!
Thank you to my friends at Scotties for sharing this information with us, and for all of the wonderful things that you do in our communities!
