BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Wednesday, October 13 is "No Bra Day" and women are encouraged to go bra-less to promote Breast Cancer awareness and support others who are unable to wear one.
Meanwhile in Massachusetts, a non-profit is in need of support of its own, to help homeless women and girls in need.
Dana Marlowe is the founder of the global non-profit, "I Support The Girls."
The non-profit is based in Maryland, and they have 59 affiliates in the U.S. and around the world. They provide bras and feminine hygiene products to homeless women, including here in Massachusetts.
However, the head of the local chapter recently retired and now, Marlowe is looking for someone to fill their spot.
"We would love some more folks in Massachusetts, anywhere in the state to help us help you to give back," said Marlowe.
Their goal is to collect products locally and donate the items back to women and girls in need in Massachusetts.
Since 2017, they have collected and donated nearly half-a-million products to different organizations in the Commonwealth. Marlowe added, a little support goes a long way.
