Giving Back to Our Community

Women and Children Too

Each year Lowell Women’s Week chooses to aid a community organization with a drive for materials, that will help women of all ages in our city. This year we are honored to assist The Center for Hope and Healing, which serves survivors of sexual assault, and works to build community free from sexual violence. We will be accepting donations of women’s sweatpants and sweatshirts, as well as small items to assist with young children. Women who have been sexually assaulted are required to leave their clothing behind as evidence. The Center is requesting sweatpants and sweatshirts (sizes M-XL) to give to clients leaving the hospital.  The Center is also requesting donations of small items like crayons, coloring books, markers, drawing paper, and play-do for young children who have been sexually assaulted.

We will be collecting items at the annual breakfast, as well as at all programs offered as part of Lowell Women’s Week. Thank you for your generosity.

If you have questions, or would like more information on drop-off locations or on how your organization can contribute, please contact joann_marcos@nps.gov .
