MLK Community Service Project – Donation Drive

January 15 - January 23

Free
As part of our Martin Luther King Jr. Day observance, Bedford Embraces Diversity, the Parents Diversity Council and the Rotary Club will be holding 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:
antiperspirant
shampoo
toilet paper
paper towels
laundry detergent tabs
socks for men and women
Clorox wipes
diapers
pullups
incontinence underwear for men and women
Youth and Family Services also accepts gift cards 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:
The Food Bank Wishlist:  https://a.co/cRDFKGF
The Diaper Bank Wishlist:  https://a.co/eY30EQP
Thanks for your help!
