"I was suddenly unable to do the things I once enjoyed, struggling to come to terms with my injury, frustrated and angry”

Bob's life changed completely in 2013 when he fell two stories while shrink wrapping a boat at the marina where he worked. With the help of his family and BIA-MA,he has found ways to enjoy most of the things he used to, just a little differently.

The BIA-MA #GivingTuesday GiveBACK Drive is the best cure for the overconsumption hangover brought on by Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday!

Consider givingBACK to your community this November! #GivingTuesday is a 24-hour day of giving that will help you refocus on what’s important and support the causes you care about. What started out as one day, we have expanded to be a month-long drive from now until Tuesday, December 3.

Join us this year by donating items that will be distributed Massachusetts shelters for domestic violence. 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men have been victims of violence at the hands of an intimate partner. Victims of DV may suffer a TBI without knowing it—81% of those who have been abused and sought care have suffered a head injury.

We hope to provide some comfort to those in need this time of year!


Bring unwrapped, new (still packaged, unused) items to any of our locations by December 3rd to be delivered in time for the holidays.

Boxes are available at the following locations:

  • Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts - 30 Lyman St, Ste 10, Westborough, MA 01581 (HOURS: M-F 9:00 am – 5:00 pm)
