A 9/11 Tribute: Give a Gift to a Veteran at New England Center for Homeless Vets

9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance

Boston Cares is teaming up with the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund to put together care packages for Massachusetts military serving overseas, as well as Veterans in our community.

This year, Boston Cares is collecting donations to benefit our good friends at the New England Center for Homeless Veterans.

We are collecting the following items for the New England Center: 

  • Scarves
  • Socks
  • Toiletries (assembled in kits, or donated separately):
  • razors
  • shaving cream
  • toothbrushes
  • toothpaste
  • soap
  • deodorant
Please fill out this form to indicate the item and quantity that you will donate for the drive.  Make your pledge by Sunday, August 25th.

Two options for dropping off your donations:

  1. Bring your donations to our Boston Cares office by Wednesday, September 4th between 9am-5pm.
  2. Transport your donations to the Rose Kennedy Greenway by Aquarium Station on Wednesday, September 11th at 9:00am.

This project is part of the Boston Cares 9/11—Remember & Serve Initiative.  In 2009, the passage of the Edward M. Kennedy ServeAmerica Act formally recognized September 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance under federal law and Presidential Proclamation. 

The opportunity date and time you are looking for is no longer available.
