HOST YOUR OWN DRIVE

You don’t have to volunteer on site to make a difference! Challenge your office or group to collect critical items like toiletries or gift cards that are needed to support our guests and tenants. Host drives to create Welcome Home Baskets or toiletry kits.

LEARN & SERVE

This morning opportunity is ideal for a team of 6-10 volunteers. Your group will work alongside our staff and trainees assisting with food preparation and kitchen support. We will also include a tour of our shelter where your group will have the opportunity to learn more about our mission and the issues surrounding homelessness in Boston.

MEAL SPONSOR & SERVE

Pine Street Inn prepares 17,500 meals each week, 52 weeks a year. We rely on partners to underwrite and support the meals we serve to our guests; this makes a great impact on our overall food budget. Promotional assets and volunteer opportunities vary depending on level of sponsorship. Ideal for groups of 3-20 volunteers.

HOUSING MEALS & ACTIVITIES

Provide the ingredients and prepare a healthy dinner for tenants at one of our permanent housing locations. Groups plan and provide a meal for approximately 12-25 tenants. This is a great way to get to know our tenants while sharing a delicious meal. Perfect for 2-5 volunteers who can make a monthly/quarterly commitment.

CHOP-A-THON

This opportunity is ideal for larger teams of 30-70 volunteers. Groups work alongside our kitchen staff and trainees, chopping large quantities of vegetables and produce to be used in meal preparation for our guests. This is an opportunity for groups able to underwrite their service event.

CAUSE MARKETING

Pine Street Inn welcomes opportunities to partner with organizations and businesses on successful and mutually beneficial cause-related marketing campaigns. Our staff is happy to collaborate with both local and national partners on creative marketing vehicles that drive business and enhance positive brand association.
