|Our month-long Love Local Clothing Drive to collect items for homeless children, women, and men at 25 local shelters and health clinics end on Tuesday.
I wish I could say it’s been a rousing success.
We understand that part of the problem is that we’re looking to collect new sweatshirts, sweatpants, t-shirts, socks, and other items for this campaign. That’s because, like so many others, our partners at Circle of Hope don't have the staff to wash used clothing donations as would have happened in the past.
That certainly doesn’t alleviate the need.
So when you are out and about this weekend, please consider making a few purchases to help those in need. Bring them to one of these sites and, we hope, you stay for a bite to eat too.
Thanks very much.
Tripadvisor on the rebound
After taking a big hit early in the pandemic, Tripadvisor is bouncing back.
The Needham-based company ended 2022 with approximately 3,100 employees.
That's 409 more workers than at the end of 2021, an increase of 15%, according to Lucia Maffei at BBJ.
This is especially noteworthy at a time when so many tech companies are now doing the downsizing Trip did a few years back.
In 2022, Tripadvisor also hit more than one billion reviews and opinions.
