Second Chances Spring Refresh

Thank you to everyone who attended and supported Second Chances Spring Refresh Event in May 2022!

About the Event

More than 100 guests gathered in Union Square, Somerville to enjoy our warm and wonderful community, delicious food and refreshments, outdoor games, a textile crafting project, a clothing drive, music, and a moving speaking program featuring several client stories from one of our nonprofit partners.

It was truly wonderful to reconnect and we exceeded our fundraising goal for the event, raising a little more than $31,000! Funds raised at the event will fuel and sustain our work in the years ahead, allowing Second Chances to reach even more people in our community who need empowering clothing, shoes, undergarments, and accessories to face challenges with confidence.

Your partnership and contributions help ease some financial and emotional stress, enabling folks to attend job training, interviews, and housing appointments in clothing that promotes self-esteem and wellbeing.

We are deeply grateful for our compassionate community.
