Hope & Comfort’s COVID-19 Response
Hope & Comfort is distributing thousands of hygiene items during this challenging time through our network of over 100 partner organizations reaching youth and families in need across every corner of Greater Boston through youth services, food pantries, meal distribution sites, and more. Hope & Comfort distributed over 1,516,000 hygiene products in 2020.
Unfortunately, we don’t expect demand to slow down anytime soon. In the weeks to come, we are committed to continuing to supply soap and other essential hygiene products to those who depend on us.
