Nominations to United Way's Holiday Wishes are due Monday!

Nominations for Holiday Wishes are due Monday! Each year we partner with FUN 107 & 1420 WBSM to fulfill Holiday Wishes for families and individuals on the SouthCoast.

We are looking to help families and individuals who have fallen on hard times due to loss of job, death or severe medical conditions of spouse or child, unanticipated bills that arise due to natural/unplanned disasters, etc. The ideal nominee is someone who is active in the Greater New Bedford area, needs assistance beyond the services provided by traditional health and human service agencies, has realistic and obtainable needs, and is often reluctant to ask for help even in dire situations.

Nominations will only be accepted at https://unitedwayofgnb.org/holiday-wishes and must be fully submitted by October 31, 2022 to be considered.

If you have questions, reach out to us at 508-994-9625 ext. 210.

Since 1912, we have used the Girl Scout slogan to “Do a good turn Daily” as a reminder of the many ways girls can contribute positively to the lives of others. We recognize that in the days ahead it may be difficult for families with so much uncertainty around what is happening. We at Girl Scouts of Eastern MA will be doing our part for our members and those new to Girl Scouts by offering these programs for free. These resources can be found by visiting our website.
Únase a nosotros para una conversación en español durante un café para aprender sobre la programación virtual gratuita de Girl Scouts. Aprenda cómo navegar por nuestros recursos y qué tipos de programas ofrecemos para ayudar a que sus niñas desarrollen habilidades de liderazgo.
