Boston Living Center Wish List
The BLC offers a wide range of services to our members. Sometimes it’s being able to give a new member some personal care items or a few household items to assist them in setting up a new home. In striving to always meet the needs of our members there are many items that are handy to have around the Center. There are also things that come up that would make the daily work run a little more smoothly for BLC staff.
Some of the items we need are small, some a little larger in scope. But all are much needed around the BLC. Please keep in mind as you read over the list and think about what you can give, that we don’t have a great deal of storage space and cannot accept all donations. Please give us a call at 617-236-1012 first to let us know what you would like to donate. Thanks.
