What an incredible gift that your church is giving to the community…actually, these masks are the gift of life and we are so very grateful. As always, we will continue to take as many as your folks (parishioners, congregants?) can make and spare. Thanks so much to you for coordinating and Park Street Church for really delivering,

Who We Serve
This group began as a small group of women wanting to provide face coverings to Eliot Services. We have grown to a team of 25 women as well as delivery helpers. We care for groups as diverse as Saint Francis House, Rosie’s Kitchen, Fenway Development Corp. and many others. One of the groups that has most broken our hearts has been isolated seniors in facilities across Boston. We want our facemasks to get into the hands of every senior who is unable to socialize or spend time in the presence of a friend or care partner as soon as possible!
Our team doesn’t get to see the impact of what they do, but their work is an extremely personal expression of God’s love.
I’m humbled by the work of so many willing hands and privileged to provide whatever support is possible.
