Thanksgiving Project

  • Share:
September 19, 2017
Last year, with your help, we fed over 6,500 low-income families. Please join with your family,
friends or coworkers to support The Thanksgiving Project, the largest collective initiative of its kind
in our region. Together, we will again celebrate the true meaning of the season by giving and volunteering to help our neighbors in need.

For more information, contact Cece Chung at or 617.624.8127.
Thank you for joining the movement to help people today and build a brighter, stronger future
for everyone in our community.

Three ways to help:

Donate Money
Just $50 will feed a family of three or more. To give, please donate online by visiting

Donate Food
Run a food drive for a particular food item (see list) or purchase items directly by visiting

After donating, individuals, families and groups can help pre-pack Thanksgiving care packages during the week of November 14-17 or distribute meal kits on Saturday, November 18. Volunteer sites include Dorchester, Lynn, the South End, the South Shore and Merrimack Valley.

Food Drive Collections run until November 10th.
Delivery to: BCEC, 415 Summer Street, Boston on Monday, November 13th.
November 14-18, 2017

Pick a Fixin’
We hope to create more standard packages for all families by collecting
donations of a single item during food drives. For example, ask all
your co-workers to bring in a can of cranberry sauce.
