The Protective Services Program of OCES spearheaded a drive to benefit people experiencing homelessness in our service area. Socks and personal care items were donated by the OCES staff and collected from each of our locations.
The donations were then delivered to MainSpring House shelters located at 54 North Main Street in Brockton and their new location on South Spooner Street in Plymouth.
“Each year, our Protective Services and Money Management Program team holds a drive to collect needed items for individuals experiencing homelessness in our community,” explained Teresa Kourtz, LSW, PS/MMP Director, who led the drive. “There are a number of people facing uncertain circumstances who are in need of emergency shelter. We strive to help by providing personal care necessities to those who don’t have ready access to these items.”
OCES is proud of the generosity of our employees and thanks everyone who participated for this wonderful demonstration of our holiday spirit of giving.
