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 and cold weather essentials such as sets of hats, scarves and gloves. With your help, we can provide a warm holiday experience that will be—like everything else at Rosie’s Place—wrapped in unconditional love and respect.

How Can You Help? 

  • Collect needed holiday items
    Coordinate an effort with your workplace, school or family to collect holiday gifts for our guests. You can also organize a drive for food or toiletries.
  • Become a volunteer
    It’s easy! To get started, submit a volunteer application for each interested person. Then you’ll be given access to our online system and you can sign up for open shifts in the dining room and food pantry in the upcoming 30 days. Volunteers must be 12 years or older, and volunteers ages 12-15 in the dining room must be accompanied by an adult registered volunteer. Please note that holiday shifts fill up very quickly.
  • Cater a meal 
    Rosie's Place relies on a network of volunteer catering groups to provide more than 100,000 meals a year. Caterers make a donation of $350 to underwrite food costs and then prepare and serve a nutritious meal to approximately 150 women, with our assistance. All volunteers must be 12 or older. Catering as a group is the easiest way to volunteer with several people. Review available dates or request a date. Please note that catering groups are limited to 5 people on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
  • Support Rosie’s Place with an event
    Consider making Rosie’s Place the beneficiary of your community event or holiday gathering. 
  • Send holiday cards
    Send greetings to family, friends and clients—and give the gift of hope. Choose from seven Boston scenes and winter illustrations from acclaimed local artists.
  • Give to Rosie’s Place
    Support our vital programs and services for 12,000 women each year with a one-time gift or monthly donation that funds our work year-round!
