Supporting Women and Girls in our Brookline Community


Happy New Year! Through the holiday season and beyond we have been busy with gift baskets and adding new inventory; we have so many great items to share with you!

As we look to entering our third year of business, our commitment to our Brookline community is more important than ever. We love supporting causes that lift up our town and its residents and thought it would be fun to create a blog series to share a few of the initiatives we are working on now and have been working on for years.

Supporting Women and Girls ‘Thriving’ in Brookline 

Women and Girls ‘Thriving’ in Brookline is an effort through Brookline Community Mental Health that focuses on educating and connecting low income women in Brookline with opportunities for them and their families. Our friend and customer Tracy Clark is using her talents to drive awareness and funds for this cause, and we are proud to support two upcoming events:

January 28, 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm Grainne O’Malley’s, 201 Harvard Street Brookline –
Tracy Clark and company, along with other noted local artists will perform for this benefit. $25 at the door, auction items will be available for bidding.

February 27, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm – A special shopping event at Olive Connection, 1426 Beacon Street Brookline – Will be part of the auction activities during the January 28th benefit.
A portion of proceeds from this shopping evening will benefit Women and Girls ‘Thriving’ in Brookline. Vine Ripe Grill & Catering will provide food and wine for this fun community event.

On February 8, we’ll be at the Women at the Center/ Women Creating Positive Change For Women and Girls Event sponsored by Brookline Center for Community Mental Health at Alden Castle in Brookline.  Olive Connection is a member of the Host Committee sponsoring tickets for the evening.

It’s Girl Scout cookie time!

Did you know that Olive Connection owner Carol is a former Girl Scout and is on the Board of Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts? Selling cookies provides important lessons in teamwork, fundraising, business skills, confidence and more for our local girls. You can support Brookline’s Girl Scouts by visiting one of their upcoming Brookline cookie booths:
January 20 – 21 and February 3, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm – Trader Joe’s, 1317 Beacon Street Brookline
