Giving Back to Our Community

GET INVOLVED!

Give back to the community through a donation to Megan’s House

 Every year, Lowell Women’s Week gives back to our community through donations for a local organization that benefits women. This year, we are collecting materials for Megan’s House, which is a long-term residential treatment facility for young women seeking relief from substance abuse. The Megan’s House Foundation was established in memory of Megan Grover, who lost her battle with addiction at age 26. Their mission is to “improve the quality of life of its residents through an evidence-based substance abuse treatment program that emphasizes individual dignity, self-respect, and empowerment.  Lowell Women’s Week wants to help empower these women to reach success and sobriety by collecting personal hygiene products such as pads, tampons, and shower supplies (soaps, shampoos, shower gels, etc.). Residents in the treatment facility are required to keep a journal, so we are including journals and notebooks to our collection list for the residents. Your donation will help a resident on her journey to feel empowered and rewrite her personal narrative – not as a victim of the disease of addiction, but as a survivor of one of the deadliest epidemics of our generation. If you would like to help in our efforts to give back to our community, please bring these items with you to the breakfast on March 4th or collect these items at your workplace and contact joann_marcos@nps.gov for more information on drop off locations or how your organization can contribute.
