Collaborating with the YMCA of Greater Boston
When Boston Public Schools made the decision to close, many students and families wondered where they should turn for daily meals. Thankfully, the YMCA of Greater Boston stepped in and has been working tirelessly to provide Boston’s youth in need with free and nutritious meals. Students can now also access essential hygiene products from Hope & Comfort at the Y’s meal sites. To date, Hope & Comfort has provided nearly 20,000 hygiene products to this effort.
“As the YMCA of Greater Boston rolls out our COVID-19 emergency response programs, including meal distribution sites for Boston area youth in need, we are grateful to have Hope & Comfort’s support as our go-to partner for hygiene products. They have supplied us with thousands of items in the past few days alone – including soap, which is quite literally a lifesaver in these unprecedented times.”
– James Morton, Greater Boston YMCA President and CEO
