On May 15, ten women from Day Pitney's Women Working Together (WWT) group in Boston underwrote, cooked and served dinner for nearly 150 women at Rosie's Place. Rosie's Place was founded in 1974 as the first women's shelter in the United States. Everyone present was grateful for the invaluable services that Rosie's Place provides, including a soup kitchen, food pantry, homeless shelter and computer education courses.

WWT-Boston also recently presented the shelter with hundreds of personal-care items they collected. In honor of Women's History Month, Day Pitney's WWT collected personal care items, including soaps and shampoos, dental care products, socks, and hair accessories, for local women's charities during a month-long drive in March at all Day Pitney offices.
