Provision Ministry: Connecting businesses and nonprofits to serve those in need
Westborough – On a recent late-summer morning, Tom Slicklen stood outside the Living Word Church in Worcester, clipboard in hand, overseeing a large delivery being loaded off a truck. In the many boxes in the truck were brand-new socks – 50,000 pairs – donated by the company, Bombas. Carefully checking his spreadsheet, Slicklen, along with employees of the church, sorted the boxes for their final destinations, which would include homeless shelters, outreach groups and veterans’ facilities throughout the state.
The initiative is just one example of the work Slicklen does as the head of Provision Ministry, the Westborough nonprofit which he founded in 2017.
The organization – which in spite of its name is not affiliated with any particular denomination – will have provided an astounding $2 million worth of goods to Massachusetts nonprofits by the end of this year, according to Slicklen.
