Make a Donation

A lot of local charities have had to cancel events and fundraisers due to coronavirus concerns. These organizations are vital to our neighborhood and it’s important to show your love and support!  Here are a few to consider:

South Boston Boys & Girls Club – The mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston is to help young people, especially those who need us most, build strong character and realize their full potential as responsible citizens and leaders. We do this by providing: a safe haven filled with hope and opportunity, ongoing relationships with caring adults, and life-enhancing programs. For 80 years, the South Boston Boys & Girls Club have worked to create a welcoming and supportive environment for the children of South Boston. To make a donation visit here.

This fund will make grants to rebuild local play spaces and fund family-focused programming in their community, particularly for families in need.For more information about Colin’s Joy Project, go to www.colinsjoyproject.org

South Boston Neighborhood House – One of Boston’s original historic settlement houses, the South Boston Neighborhood House (SBNH) was founded in 1901 with a mission ‘to support family and neighborhood life in South Boston.’ Affectionately known as “the Ollie” after founder, Olivia James, the Neighborhood House has always been known for the deep ties and connections among participants and families that have endured for generations, and the historic welcome and investment in South Boston’s immigrant populations and other new residents that continues to this day. The South Boston Neighborhood House is the oldest continually operating human service agency in South Boston, and the community’s only independent multi-service provider. As an independent and stand-alone agency, South Boston Neighborhood House can be flexible, rapid in our response to community needs and at the forefront of community issues.
