Make a Donation
Your tax deductible donation will go to work immediately. Whether it is emergency shelter or stable housing, education or job training, donated funds are used to empower individuals and families in their journey toward economic self-sufficiency.
Special thanks to all of those who made gifts to help us reach our goal of new or increased gifts totaling $50,000, and especially to Ralph Bates and all who generously donated a $50,000 match to Wellspring! Our work would not be possible without you. If you have not given to the Annual Fund, please consider a gift today.

- New towels
- Gift cards for guest emergency food and pharmacy needs (Market Basket, Shaw’s, CVS, Walgreens)
- DVDs (can be Blu-ray or regular) for children of all ages and families
- Gift cards for groceries and/or transportation services
- Gift cards and toys for the Holiday Store
To help, please contact Mary Hardwick, Wellspring’s Hospitality Manager and Volunteer Coordinator at (978) 281-3221 ext. 300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Professional Clothing Donations
Wellspring’s “Awesome Closet” offers a selection of gently worn men’s and women’s business attire for our program participants to select from for interviews or new jobs in all sizes. Participants in our education, job training and homelessness prevention programs, as well as shelter guests are welcome to “shop” for free. It’s a great way to help make a good impression and have something nice to wear until those first few paychecks come in and finances even out.
If you have clothing, professional or otherwise, that you would like to donate to Wellspring Participants, please contact Mary Hardwick, Hospitality Manager and Volunteer Coordinator.
Donations are accepted Monday-Friday from 9am-4pm.
Please Note: We are no longer accepting winter clothes for the 2018/2019 season. We will begin accepting spring/summer clothes starting on Monday, April 1, 2019.
