Holiday Assistance

Please help us help others in need.

This is not a season of merriment or plenty for everyone.  If you've been fortunate enough to never experience need, it's shocking to learn what others endure.  And the need increases each year.

Our largest outreach effort, the Holiday Gift Giving Program, provides the highest volume of holiday assistance to Quincy residents and homeless families.  Our neighbors who are of low to moderate income are in need of food, clothing, household items and toys.

They are referred to us by organizations including Manet Community Health Center, Quincy Public Schools, Quincy Police, South Shore Mental Health, Father Bill's Main Spring and other faith institutions.

Every child receives a winter coat, one outfit and pajamas along with gifts chosen from their wish list.

Most importantly, this program provides a week’s worth of groceries, which is crucial because the children are on school vacation for a week and will not receive breakfast and lunch at school.

Thank you for joining us in bringing a peaceful, plentiful holiday to our neighbors.  Please call us at 617-376-1384.
