Virtual Event
  • This event has passed.

Words cannot express enough gratitude for everyone who helped make our Spring-Tacular giving campaign and online auction a success! You stepped up to this challenge to provide countless women and children with #APlaceToCallHome during these exceptionally trying times.

Thank you again to The George I. Alden Trust for their generous matching gift, to all of our sponsors, tasting stations, and those who donated auction items, to our staff and volunteers, to the women and children who call Abby’s House home, and to you – our wonderful community! We couldn’t have done this without you!

Through your generosity the matching gift from The George I. Alden Trust for $25,000 has been activated!

Ways You Can Get Involved

By making a donation, you’ll help provide support for the critical needs of women and children that are arising due to the COVID-19 pandemic who desperately rely on the services that Abby’s House provides. The George I. Alden Trust has graciously committed to match all donations made now through the month of May, up to $25,000! This means your gift will have double the impact in the lives of those we serve. To have a personal conversation about how your gift will impact the women and children of Abby’s House, contact Kelly Whalen, director of development at (508) 756-5486 x214 or by email at .

*Don’t forget to check with your HR department about company match! To learn more about other ways to make a donation, including information on qualified charitable distributions, visit our Ways to Give page.

The online auction is now closed. Winners will be contacted to arrange pickup of items within the next week. If you have any questions regarding the auction or how to pick up your items, contact Kelly Whalen, Director of Development at or by phone at (508) 756-5486 x214

Consider sharing our 7-day giving campaign with your family and friends! This is a simple and easy way to make a huge impact in the lives of those who are most vulnerable in our community. We’ll be posting frequent updates and messages throughout this challenge and we invite you to re-share our messages to your followers.

We’ve also put together a Peer-to-Peer Toolkit to help you get started! This has sample language you can use when sharing our messages with family and friends.

Thank you to our 2020 tasting stations!

Many of these are local business who are being greatly impacted by the recent pandemic. We are saddened that we cannot be together to celebrate the women and children of Abby’s House. Please consider supporting these wonderfully generous organizations.
