~ Submitted by Bedford Embraces Diversity, the Parents Diversity Council, and the Rotary Club of Bedford
As part of our Martin Luther King Jr. Day observance, Bedford Embraces Diversity, the Parents Diversity Council, and the Rotary Club will hold a donation drive to support the Bedford Food Bank, which provides for about 120 households a week and is always in need of items that aren’t available through Greater Boston Food Bank or other donors.
Items on this list include:
- Toilet paper
- Paper towels
- Laundry detergent tabs
- Socks for men and women
- Clorox wipes
- Incontinence underwear for men and women
Youth and Family Services also accepts gift cards (Stop N Shop, Target, Market Basket, Whole Foods, Amazon) to distribute to residents in need throughout the year. There will be collection boxes at 18 Balsam Drive and 120 North Road from Jan 15-23. The boxes will be closely monitored and emptied frequently so donated items will be safe.
To make things even simpler, Bedford Youth and Family Services has two Amazon wish lists where you can purchase items and have them sent directly to their office:
Items purchased from the wish lists should be shipped to
Christopher Bang, LICSW

Town of Bedford

Bedford Embraces Diversity, the Parents Diversity Council thank you for your help and remind you that the program honoring the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., will take place via Zoom on Monday, January 17.
