Pine Street Inn prepares 17,000 meals each week, 52 weeks a year.  We depend on the support and generosity of our partners in the community to provide nutritious meals to the men and women in our shelters. Serving at Pine Street Inn is a big help to our staff and our guests, as we rely on volunteers every single day to come in and serve both breakfast and dinner. This opportunity is also a great way to learn more about homelessness in Boston, to bond with family and friends, and to help those less fortunate in our community.  Our volunteers are an invaluable part of the Pine Street Inn community, and we look forward to working with you to help end homelessness together!

Thank you for donating your time and money towards this worthy cause. Depending on responses and donations, we will soon be doing another event, with the same enthusiasm.

Best wishes,
