Give to Support Our Work
At Rosie’s Place, our doors remain open as we continue to serve the women who turn to us when there is nowhere else to go. COVID-19 has required us to limit much of what we do with our community of supporters, but there still are creative and meaningful ways you can help. Thank you!
Help us stock our Food Pantry
Donate our most needed food items without leaving the safety of your home. Food purchased through YouGiveGoods will be delivered directly to Rosie's Place and given to women in need. For details on setting up your own drive, visit bit.ly/RPFoodDrive.
Become a monthly donor
By making a sustaining gift through our Friends for All Seasons monthly giving program, you will provide steady, dependable funding we can count on, in times both good and difficult.
Donate Holiday Gifts
We work to brighten the season by providing guests with holiday gifts. This year we are only accepting $25 gift cards to CVS, Walgreens, Target, and/or Old Navy as well as bath and body gift sets with lotion, body wash and body spray (from stores such as Bath& Body Works). With your help, we can provide a warm holiday experience that will be—like everything else at Rosie’s Place—wrapped in unconditional love and respect.
Support a guest’s stay in our Overnight Shelter
Providing the sanctuary of a safe, clean bed and support services is critical to the health of homeless women at this time. A donation of $50 will fund a one-night stay for one woman and allow us the time to work closely with her to meet her needs.
Create care packages for guests
You can help get essential items to Rosie’s Place guests in a safe and efficient way. Follow these guidelines to assemble three different types of kits that can be easily distributed to food pantry visitors and the homeless women we serve each day.
Sponsor a catered meal
We have come to rely on our volunteer groups, who underwrite the $350 cost of the meal they prepare and serve. Replacing that lost catering fee will be critical to helping us sustain all of our vital food programs.
Coordinate a digital fundraiser
With social gatherings put on hold and events to benefit Rosie’s Place suspended for the time being, a Facebook Fundraiser is an easy way to connect with your community to raise funds on our behalf. Simply go to facebook.com/fund/rosiesplace to launch your own fundraiser or visit bit.ly/RPFoodDrive to create a virtual food drive through YouGiveGoods.
Donate our most needed items
Right now, disposable surgical masks or homemade masks, as well as disinfectant cleaning and sanitizing products, are our most sought-after items. If you are able, please mail or drop them off to us at 889 Harrison Avenue, Boston. Your donation will help us keep Rosie’s Place safe and healthy for our guests.
Please note we are not accepting any other donated items at this time, e.g. clothing, toiletries, furniture, et al.
