Support Rosie's Place This Holiday Season

Every holiday season brings more women in need, both at Rosie’s Place and in our community. We work to brighten the season by providing guests with holiday gifts to offer a warm holiday experience that will be—like everything else at Rosie’s Place—wrapped in unconditional love and respect.

How Can You Help?


Donate Holiday Gifts

Coordinate an effort with your workplace, school or family to collect holiday gifts for our guests! This year we are only accepting $25 gift cards to CVS, Walgreens, Target, and/or Old Navy as well as bath and body gift sets with lotion, body wash and body spray (from stores such as Bath& Body Works). 

All donations should be sent directly to the attention of Shelli Stevens, 889 Harrison Ave, Boston, MA 02118. We encourage donations to be shipped, however if you plan to drop of holiday gifts please do so to 47 Thorndike St, Boston, MA 02118. Gift receiving will be open Monday - Friday from 10am - 4pm. Please ring the 3rd floor bell when you arrive with your donation. We will be receiving donations through December 11th.

You may contact Shelli Stevens at 617.318.0211 or if you have any questions.

Sponsor a catered meal

We have come to rely on our volunteer groups, who underwrite the $350 cost of the meal they prepare and serve. Replacing that lost catering fee will be critical to helping us sustain all of our vital food programs.
