2018 Charity

Each year, MWPHE, Inc. selects a charity to support at the Annual Spring Conference. This years conference we are supporting

We Do Care, Grief & Loss Inc.


We are writing to you on behalf of We Do Care, Grief and Loss Inc. a grassroots

non-profit 501c3 based in Easton, Massachusetts that serves young widows, widowers and their children.  Julie Brennan, a young widow with two little boys, created We Do Care to help other widows access support and services they need.


We Do Care runs a peer-to-peer support group, bringing families together after loss, connecting them with others who understand their journey. We believe that supporting the surviving spouse helps them better manage the grief and be more present for their children. Our mission is to empower our members and allow them to heal at their own pace.


Our programming includes:

  • An Adult Support group for young widows and widowers facilitated by a widow. Offering them a safe place where coping skills and strategies are shared is important. This provides our members with hope for their future.

  • A Kids Group for children who have lost a parent. They do expressive art and get to be with kids who are just like them. 

  • Social meet ups to help foster connection and socialization for all members.

  • Our Facebook chat group provides support at any time.

  • An annual Holiday Gift drive and Christmas Party for our members.

  • Family friendly events, such as bowling, sporting events, theater performances and dinner with the Easton Firefighters.


With your support and financial help we can expand our programming and outreach. Please consider making a donation to directly support our young widows and children.  Online donations can be made by going to and clicking the donate link. We Do Care will soon be having an online auction in the spring. Donations for bid worthy items and gift certificates for goods or services are greatly appreciated.  If you choose to donate to our auction you can mail to the below address or contact us to arrange pick up or drop off.
