Volunteer and serve breakfast at the New England Center for Homeless Veterans

  • The New England Center for Homeless Veterans

    17 Court Street, Boston, MA (map)

    42.359046 -71.058458

  • I volunteer a couple of times a month serving lunch at the shelter. Great group of men and women who have served our country and have come back needing a little help. The Center, which was started by a Veteran, provides housing, health care, social services, food, as well as a multitude of other services for our returning heroes. They have volunteer groups come in on weekends and do breakfast service. We don't provide the food, just smiles and friendly faces. The serving starts at 7:15am and we would be done by around 9.  We have gone as a group several times and hope to keep this up monthly, there's a limit to 6 servers each time. It's really a wonderful time. Some of the ladies asked about baking/bringing something. I also spoke with the head of the kitchen....just avoid things with nuts because of allergies. Hope to see you all then! We can carpool, it's near the Orange line and if you drive in you can park right in front. Also remember a hat, you need to have your head/hair covered to serve.

    Ladies, I found out that the Hubway on wheels day (the Mayor Menino bike day) is on this day. I tried a couple of years ago to do the volunteer day this day and all the streets were blocked off and no parking at all. Given the difficulty in getting in and parking due to the bike event, I am cancelling this date. Trust me, you will thank me for it! I'll be posting some additional dates shortly

      OK. Bummer though, I haven't been there in a while. See you next time.
