About Us

Towels for Tears is a 501(c)3 organization founded in March 2017 that began operating in August 2017 for the purpose of loving and helping those who are hurting. We currently support Montgomery County, Maryland and surrounding counties. There is a particular vulnerability that arises when you lose everything. The tears shed as a result can be hard, bitter, or broken. We believe we are meant to be a part of the solution - to be the hands and feet that reach out to help wipe away the tears of survivors of domestic violence, disaster and homelessness. We figuratively and literally wrap them in love and hope for their future by providing them new quality towels, linen, blankets, comforters, and age appropriate hygiene kits. 


Starting over with nothing or leaving everything behind is costly. And the memories are devastating. Most often the money received immediately following a disaster or escape from domestic abuse is used to meet basic needs including food, shelter, transportation and childcare. Our services help to relieve the financial burden of starting over so that the individual or family's funds and support can be stretched farther in those critical areas.  


Love in Action. Towels for Tears partners with local community resources (relief organizations, safe houses, shelters, churches, businesses) and YOU to make a difference. Together we positively impact the lives of those starting over from traumatic and life changing circumstances through the delivery of our products. 


Even a little goes a long way to changing lives. If you are committed to helping others in disasters or escaping domestic violence or homelessness, please give generously. Do you want to support us by volunteering with our work? Then do not hesitate to contact us. A helping hand is always greatly appreciated!


Towels for Tears operates 100% debt-free and gives 10% of monetary donations to bless and support other charitable organizations.
