Scotties Facial Tissues Welcomes The Homeless Into Permanent Housing

January was a great month for 100 homeless people in Boston who are now living in permanent supportive housing thanks to the generosity of The Pine Street Inn. The Pine Street Inn is the largest resource for the homeless in the state of Massachusetts. They provide emergency shelters for the homeless, have street teams, they offer job placement programs as well as many other resources.

 

In a partnership with Scotties Facial Tissues, the new residents were welcomed into their new homes with comfort care packs. In an effort to kick off 2017 with a worthy cause, Scotties provided each of the 100 residents with a queen-sized fleece blanket, warm slipper socks, a mug with hot cocoa and marshmallows, and of course boxes of  soft Scotties tissues! These small gifts of comfort can be just what may be needed to turn a house into a home. For so many homeless people, who have not had a room of their own for a long time, this acted as one small step in their journey to a better life for themselves.

Maria, who has lived in her beautiful home for the last three months was previously homeless.  She has made her home her own by beautifully decorating it in the style of her native home, Columbia.  She is eager to put the Scotties blanket to use this winter!

Scotties Facial Tissues asked me what my favorite soft summer moments and memories are! A soft summer moment is one that warms your heart, makes you slow down and savor the wonderful summer season.

Growing up my favorite soft summer moments would have to be when we traveled to visit my Grandparents in Wisconsin. Playing out on their farm with the goats in the early years, and later walks around town when the weather was just cooling off. I really miss the family time we had just savoring each others company and just being kids!

Another favorite soft summer moment from being a kid is swimming! I’m not sure how but my brother and I could swim for hours! Lakes, pools, or even the old tarp slip and slide my dad put down with dish soap on it..we could have fun in the water for hours! I really hope the weather picks up this year in NW WA state so I can take my kids to the river to spend all day swimming!

Now as an adult with my own family my favorite soft summer moments are slowing down and sitting around a camp fire in our own yard, and roasting hotdogs and or marshmallows. No dishes to worry about, no crumbs to sweep up after…a mothers pure bliss! Sure the kids get a bit sticky, and one gets a bit sneezy (he has allergies, the Scotties samples I received are helping out nicely with Sages summer allergies!) but we all have a good time! My only care in the world is making sure Cruz doesn’t fall in the fire, and that the dogs don’t eat all the food!

Every year we try to make it down to the ocean for a barbecue and fun in the water. It’s always a good time watching the kids play in the “sand” (we have mostly rocks around here) and looking for sea life! My favorite soft summer moment at the beach is watching the sun set. It’s so beautiful and you can just relax and watch the water change colors and know your kids are going to bed soon 😉image
