Thanks to previous car donors, Good News Garage has provided more than 5,500 vehicles to families throughout New England since 1996. Good news Garage pioneered the car donation model of repairing and awarding reliable donated vehicles to low income, working individuals. Your old or unused car can change lives when you donate to us. Monetary donations also help fuel our charitable program by allowing us to make repairs to the donated cars we award to neighbors in need. From new windshield wipers and tires to transmission service, every dollar helps put a family behind the wheel.
Dignity Matters helps 14,000 women and girls in Massachusetts (including 500 on Cape Cod) who are homeless or living in poverty by providing them a reliable supply of monthly menstrual care products and underwear. We reach them through a network of 165 shelters, schools, and food pantries that know their needs and are accessible in their communities.
Lack of access to menstrual care is a “deal breaker” for women in need; without it they can’t stay healthy, care for their families, work or attend school. Women have difficult accessing menstrual care because it is expensive, rarely donated, and SNAP and WIC benefits can’t be used buy it.
A special manufacturing contract helps us purchase menstrual care for 20% of average retail cost, so we can serve 5 times as many women and girls with the funds we receive. We make a 12-month commitment to each partner, so they know they will have these products available when needed, and so women know they can count on us to help them manage their periods safely every month.
The Bail Project is a national nonprofit organization that combats mass incarceration by disrupting the money bail system – one person at a time. We restore the presumption of innocence, reunite families, and challenge a system that criminalizes race and poverty. We are on a mission to end cash bail and create a more just, equitable, and humane pretrial system.
Across the United States, The Bail Project operates more than two dozen local sites and has bailed out over 24,000 low income people to date.
Through our model of Community Release with Support, we extend our help after paying bail by connecting our clients to voluntary services and resources based on their needs and providing them with court reminders and transportation assistance for the duration of their case. As people come back to court, bail payments return to our National Bail Fund to help more people.
