SLA Gives Back: Toiletries for RESPOND Inc

RESPOND Inc., based in Somerville, MA, is New England’s first domestic violence agency and the second oldest in the nation. For over 40 years RESPOND has provided life-saving shelter, support services, training and education to more than 100,000 members of the community. Services are free and confidential, and available to all survivors of domestic abuse. RESPOND’s emergency hotline is 1-617-623-5900.

RESPOND Inc. also runs an emergency shelter that can hold 21 individuals at a time. The average length of stay is four months.  At SLA 2015 we will be collecting toiletries for RESPOND’s emergency shelter. Both full size and travel size toiletries are welcome — a perfect opportunity for SLA attendees to easily bring a few items from home or purhcase them while they are visiting Boston. Start collecting shampoo, conditioner, moisturizing lotion, facewash, soap and other toiletries now; RESPOND Inc. will put them to good use.

We will have a donation box at the SLA New England booth throughout the conference.
