WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Substance Abuse Coalition and Brady’s Foundation, in partnership with the Department of Children and Families, is holding a Donation Drive this September in recognition of National Recovery Month. All donations received will benefit children and teens involved with DCF due to their caretakers impacted by mental health and/or substance abuse.
Donations will be accepted starting September 4th at various locations throughout town during their regular business hours. Donations will be accepted daily until September 30. Drop off locations include: Wilmington Town Hall, Wilmington Public Safety Department, Wilmington Senior Center, Wilmington Veterans Office, Wilmington Public Library, and in Wilmington Middle and High Schools
Donations accepted include: cleaning supplies, soap, toilet paper, laundry detergent, trash bags, gloves, PJs (any size), baby diapers (any size), baby wipes, leisure wear for teens (any size), sheets, blankets.
There will be two incentive days in which if you donate at least one listed item you will get to enjoy a donut from Wilmington Dunkin Donuts. Get this nice treat on September 10th at Town Hall from 8:30am to 8:30pm (stop in on your lunch break or before heading to the Selectmen’s Meeting at night) and September 19th at the Public Library from 9am to 9pm (swing in for an event or to find a new read and drop off a donation).
This drive is partnership between Brady’s Foundation, Wilmington Substance Abuse Coalition, and Wilmington High School Volunteers.
All donations will be given directly to DCF Cambridge, which is the office which serves the Wilmington area.
