Thank You from the Women’s Lunch Place

In June, Follenites contributed $2,069 through our Share the Plate to the Women’s Lunch Place in Boston, which provides services—including a record 85,575 meals last year—and support to Boston’s most vulnerable women in a safe, welcoming community. In a letter of appreciation, Executive Director Elizabeth Keeley thanked Follen for its commitment to WLP and its essential programs, noting that the money came at a critical time: 21.2% of Bostonians now live below the poverty line, and there’s been a 10.9% increase in homeless individuals living in shelters over last year.
