We rely on the generosity of individual donors like you! Please give today.
Without in-kind donations from generous groups and individuals, we would not be able to provide our guests with many daily necessities. The guests of Women’s Lunch Place have a variety of toiletry and personal needs. Additionally, once a month we celebrate our guests’ birthdays with decorations, a cake, and gifts. As a result, these items are needed all year long. Other needs vary by season, or storage capacity, so please check the list below for items we’d be grateful to receive now.
Contact us at 617.449.7200 for seasonal-specific requests. If you have a large donation, please contact us before delivery so that we may assist you with the drop-off process. If you would like to host your own donation drive, we can help you create signage and other information to help make your drive a success.
Drop off or ship in-kind donations to: Shelter Manager, Women’s Lunch Place, 67 Newbury Street, Boston, MA 02116.
Donations are accepted Monday through Saturday between the hours of 8:30 am – 11:30 am and 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm at 67 Newbury Street.
