    I have 3 boxes and 2 bags of items to drop off from myself and people at my work. I missed dropping off at Megan Lee’s home today but not sure of what Southies Own is…396 w Broadway looks like a health center on the google maps. Megan, can I still drop off to you tomorrow night before 9?

    Hi there!  Can you email us directly at [email protected]   Southie’s own is right across from the Health Center.  I believe Megan is all done and the uhaul is on the way.  Ku de Ta however is having a clothing drive and may take your stuff.  Thanks!
