How Groups Help

  • Cater and serve a meal in our dining roomGroups of up to 10 volunteers cook, serve, clean up and financially underwrite the cost of a nutritious lunch or dinner. This is our greatest volunteer need and, under the supervision of our dining room staff, always an enjoyable team building experience! 
  • Organize a drive for needed itemsHelp our guests by collecting and dropping off these items, and then stay for a tour!
    • Non perishable food
    • Travel or large size toiletries
    • Care packages for families entering shelter (see flyer)
    • Hats and gloves
  • Wrap gifts at the CambridgeSide Galleria Mall. Groups of 3-5 people (ages 18 and older) wrap presents to raise funds for our guests between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
