Support Our Clothing Room

Our guests are primarily men, so we have a very limited capacity to accept women’s clothing donations. Since our storage spaces are small, it is best to receive in-season donations (i.e. donations that the guests can use right away.) If you have out of season donations (i.e. winter gear in the summer) please contact us to check to see if we have sufficient storage space.

Most Needed Goods:

  • Winter coats, jackets, and vests (XL and L are most useful)
  • Hoodies, sweatshirts, sweaters  (XL and L are most useful)
  • Winter Gear: hats, gloves, scarves, etc.
  • Ponchos & rain gear
  • Backpacks & tote bags
  • Men’s jeans, sweatpants, and t-shirts

Support Our Food and Meals Program

We are grateful to receive regular donations of fresh and canned food for our soup kitchen and food pantry, especially from our partners at the Greater Boston Food Bank and Lovin’ Spoonfuls.

In general, non-perishable food drives are difficult for us to accommodate. The following is a list of items that are appreciated in limited quantities (because of our small storage spaces). We are unable to accept expired or previously opened food. With further questions, please email us.
