Mothers Day PROJECTS!

MAKE MOTHERS DAY A TIME OF CARING AND KINDNESS!

Please join Many Helping Hands 365, YWCA Cambridge, and My Brothers Keeper Cambridge in lending a helping hand to community organizations SuPPORTING women!

Over the past two years, the pandemic has compounded the basic needs of poor and homeless women in our community.

In honor of Mothers Day, we are organizing a collection of diapers, baby wipes, and feminine hygiene products for women and caregivers in Cambridge and nearby communities.

MHH365 will also host a Zoom conversation on The Racial Inequalities of Material Health at 8:00 am on May 12th.
