This winter, many families will be hit hard by the high cost of food and utilities. As a Volunteer, you can help those who may be making an impossible choice between heating their homes and feeding their families.
Looking for ways to give back to your community? Here are a fews ways to help:
There are many volunteer opportunities either with Project Bread or with one of Project Bread's funded agencies. Here are pages with information about volunteer opportunities:
Plan a food drive
Organizing a food drive is a great way to get your friends, classmates, or co-workers involved in alleviating hunger by supporting a local food program. The best foods to collect are non-perishable goods that will provide nutrition from each food group. For more information on the types of food to collect, download the USDA flyer "Balance your Gift."
To find a food pantry near you where you can bring goods, call our Volunteer Hotline at 617-239-2546 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donate goods to an emergency food program
Do you work at a store or restaurant and have a large supply of food that you want to give away? While all food programs accept non-perishable goods, some soup kitchens and other programs are able to take perishable goods as well.
To find a food pantry or soup kitchen near you, call our Volunteer Hotline at 617-239-2546 or email email@example.com.
Plan a fun holiday event for a serious cause
With the holiday season quickly approaching, organizations, employees, and families across Massachusetts will be looking for ways to give back to their community. Whether you want to create a social event that benefits a good cause, put together a fundraising activity during your corporate party, or simply do something to help members of the community, Project Bread can help.
