Our contributions will help provide many resources to these families such as direct goods and clinician support.

THE HOME FOR LITTLE WANDERERS – SUMMER 2020
Summer 2020 – STAG helped to fund the construction and beautification of The Home for Little Wanderer’s Harrington House in Dorchester, MA. The Harrington House provides a structured, home-like living environment where children are engaged with the community through sports, extra-curriculars and attending school. Serving up to sixteen deserving children from the ages of 8 through 15, the Home remains an important resource for the pre-teens/teens it supports. While in-person volunteering was cancelled due to COVID-19, the donation was greatly appreciated and helped to construct the playground, picnic benches, garden beds and bookcases.
SHARE A SPROUT CHALLENGE – SUMMER 2020
Summer 2020 – STAG consulted on a marketing campaign for CitySprouts called #ShareASprout.

The campaign was an early success and garnered thousands of social media impressions. CitySprouts will continue to use the #ShareASprout campaign to raise awareness about their organization in 2021.
