PLAINVILLE — The Town of Plainville announces that the Plainville Humanitarian Response Team is collecting essential goods for migrant families amid the ongoing humanitarian crisis.
In June, Gov. Maura Healey declared a state of emergency due to rapidly rising numbers of migrant families arriving in Massachusetts in need of shelter and services, and a severe lack of shelter availability in the state. At least 70 communities in the state, including the Town of Plainville, are navigating the circumstances surrounding the emergency placement of migrant families in hotels across the Commonwealth.
The families coming into town are being provided shelter in line with Massachusetts’ “Right-to-Shelter” Law. The Town of Plainville and the Plainville Humanitarian Response Team are working to support these families and will be collecting donations as part of this effort.
Donation collection will begin on Wednesday, Sept. 13, between 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. Collection bins will be set up at 6 Wilkins Drive, Suite 105-106. Common items in need are:
Clothing (Mens, womens, children 6 months - 8 years):
Personal Care Items
Any and all donations will be greatly appreciated by the Town and the families in need.
The Plainville Humanitarian Response Team thanks members of the community for their compassion and generosity in welcoming these families during their stay in Plainville.
Any questions regarding donations should be directed to Jennifer Plante at 508-965-5208 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
