Our very own Mary Shields and Ali Stevenson sit on the board of Plymouth Cares, a non-profit community organization dedicated to helping people and families in need within the Plymouth area. Plymouth Cares offers all of us a chance to give back this holiday season. Made possible by you and Destination Plymouth, backpacks are filled with school supplies during the summer months to help families in need. Blanket drives, diaper and wipes drives and coat drives are a few of the other donations that bring relief to our community.

The current Initiative is asking for new or gently worn coats to be dropped off at one of the six locations listed on the bottom of the flyers shown here. Shields participates in the monthly drives and 26 Howland Street is listed as a drop off location for donated items. To learn more about how you can become involved please visit their facebook page.
