A Boston Cares ServiceWorks Cohort wanted to give back in the community.

Specifically, the group of teenager volunteers wanted to help fellow peers going through hard times. They partnered with Bridge to create care kits for our youth.

To maximize their impact, the teenagers chose to meet a crucial need - toiletry supply kits.

The volunteer cohort created several hundred care kits of daily essentials. Each kit has a pair of socks, a toothbrush with a toothbrush cap, toothpaste, lip balm, soap, and deodorant. Youth will find these items invaluable while out on the streets, experiencing homelessness.

Our Street Outreach and Mobile Medical Van staff will be able to distribute these donated kits when interacting with youth. Thank you - we’re grateful for the support!
