From December 29th through January 17th, we are collecting clean, gently used coats, hats, scarves, gloves and mittens (and new warm socks) to help Lifebridge of Salem's clients who are struggling with homelessness this winter. Large sizes for men are especially needed. We'd be grateful for any donations!
Our residents recently enjoyed a delightful performance by the Dance Team from Swampscott High School. These talented girls prepared a festive dance routine to "All I Want For Christmas Is You", and the residents were thrilled with this holiday entertainment!
The Bertram House of Swampscott recently celebrated the 100th birthday of resident Edith T. with cake, sparkling cider, and entertainment from singer Paul Wayne.

Edith is now one of three 100+ year old residents at Bertram House of Swampscott!
