This is a sponsored post.  All opinions are mine.

As a blogger, I have the opportunity to share about a lot of things – including brands and products that I love. I absolutely love it when companies reach out and try to help the community. Recently, I learned about how Scotties Facial Tissues are welcoming the homeless into permanent housing and wanted to share it with you. Check it out.

January was a great month for 100 homeless people in Boston who are now living in permanent supportive housing thanks to the generosity of The Pine Street Inn. The Pine Street Inn is the largest resource for the homeless in the state of Massachusetts. They provide emergency shelters for the homeless, have street teams, they offer job placement programs as well as many other resources.

In a partnership with Scotties Facial Tissues, the new residents were welcomed into their new homes with comfort care packs. In an effort to kick off 2017 with a worthy cause, Scotties provided each of the 100 residents with a queen-sized fleece blanket, warm slipper socks, a mug with hot cocoa and marshmallows, and of course boxes of  soft Scotties tissues! These small gifts of comfort can be just what may be needed to turn a house into a home. For so many homeless people, who have not had a room of their own for a long time, this acted as one small step in their journey to a better life for themselves.

Maria, who has lived in her beautiful home for the last three months was previously homeless.  She has made her home her own by beautifully decorating it in the style of her native home, Columbia.  She is eager to put the Scotties blanket to use this winter!

As I said earlier, I love it when brands reach out to help others in the community. Thank you Scotties and The Pine Street Inn for trying to help others in need.
