The Women's Center is always in need of new or "like new" contributions. Whether it's computer equipment, food for our pantry, or maintenance work for the building, every donation strengthens our programming and resources. Contributions are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
Following is a list of items that we currently need. Due to space limitations, please contact us before you bring over a large donation. For more information, call Linda at (617) 354-6394, ext. 12, or email email@example.com.

The Women's Center has a lending library of almost 3,000 titles, in a very small space! Unfortunately, we cannot accept large donations of books. If you have a book that you think would be especially relevant for the Center, or if you are looking for a particular book to borrow, please visit our book catalog at librarything.com (our member ID is "cambridgecenter"), and search for the book title. Please email us for more information.
