"Memories That Move Us"
Join us for TCR's Annual Memories Walk

Sunday, October 25th
10:30 am at Arlington Town Hall

Our Memories Walk is EIGHT WEEKS away. 

Sign up today to be a part of TCR's biggest community event!

We also encourage you to: 
  • Invite family and friends to join you for this fun event that helps raise crucial funds for supporting grieving children and their families. 
  • Create your own personalized fundraising page when you register. Fundraising for the Walk is easy to do and a great way to share the mission of The Children's Room with family, friends, and colleagues.

We look forward to walking with you! 

Thank you,
Wilmington Trust!

Recently Wilmington Trust provided $5,000 to TCR in order to become the newest Presenting Sponsor of our 12th Annual Memories Walk! 

This significant financial commitment provides critical support as we continue to enhance and increase our grief support programs and our outreach to the wider community. We could not be more thrilled to have Wilmington Trust as a partner as we strive toward our goals. Thank you!
Tips & Tools For Back to School 

It seems almost impossible that it's already time to gather books and backpacks and to recalibrate our bodies and minds to the rhythms set by the school year. This time of year can present a particularly difficult set of adjustments for grieving children, teens, and parents. 

Read more on our website about how to make the transition back to school as smooth as it can be for everyone.

Of course, we offer tips and suggestions. We know that every loss is unique and brings with it different challenges. We hope you find a rhythm that works for you and your family.
Have a peaceful start to the new school year!

Our Heartfelt Thanks

Thank you for your support, and thanks to the following people

A very special thank you to Healthworks Fitness Centers' Cambridge location for hosting an art supply donation drive for us! Through the coordination of Healthworks staff member and TCR volunteer Lisa Ferretti, we were able to receive an incredible amount of art supplies that will help facilitate our activities throughout the upcoming year. Thank you so much!

The Children's Room has partnered with Donate for Charity to make it fast and easy to donate your old vehicle to TCR. Your vehicle will be picked up - free of charge! - from anywhere and TCR will receive a donation in the amount of the vehicle's value.
