Location image of event venue



All volunteers! We had to change the date of this first venue to accommodate schedules. Please confirm you can still attend/drop-off sleeping bags/blankets and other 'keep me warm' apparels on Saturday 12JAN13.

Thanks for helping them!

*** Date Change ***

Dear Boston Volunteers,

Every morning I get up these days I feel cold. I keep my thermostat low, and layer up. Then I think that some people don't have a thermostat at all, they sleep outside.

So here it is, I thought we could ask around and provide sleeping bags to those who have to spend the night in the cold.

Do you have a sleeping bag or thermal wear you like to donate?

Do you think your neighbor, friend or roommate might have one? can you ask around?

if you can get one sleeping bag, that's right! just ONE, it can keep one person warmer on the Boston street this winter.

Please RSVP if you have a donation, meet us at the Starbucks on Jan 19th, a few blocks away from Downtown Crossing. We will coordinate drop offs with you.

If you are not in the subway coverage, we are more than happy to come pick it up.

We will start by collecting sleeping bags from generous people on Jan 19. Later that night, we will roam the streets of Boston and give them out to whoever we come across.

You are more than welcome to join in the distribution drive later that night to see who will use your donated sleeping bag. You can take a picture, talk to them etc.

I hope you'll join us to make the nights of 2013 a little warmer for those who needs it.

Happy Holidays!

Best regards!


P.S. This event is not through a partnership organization, we, Boston Volunteers, are organizing this by ourselves.
