Outreach Events

Project Bethlehem helps families in the Greater Lawrence area with gifts for Christmas by matching them with donor families. Last year, due to the generosity and kindness of many, 415 families were able to celebrate Christmas through Project Bethlehem. If you are interested in participating in this wonderful program, please fill out the Project Bethlehem Online Donor Registration Form. If you would like additional information, contact the office at (978) 269-5204 or email

Holiday Giving Tree provides Christmas presents for all the families and individuals living in our shelter. For many, it is the first time they are able to give their children a Christmas present. The Holiday Giving Tree Donation List contains a variety of items, including sizes for clothing, underwear, socks, etc. So that we can be sure that the item you generously donate is age and size appropriate for each person, it is not necessary to wrap these gifts, but please feel free to include wrapping paper with your gift donation.

Holiday Food Orders

When most of us think about the holidays, we look forward to warm and cozy times shared with family and friends; beautiful times, wonderfully shared moments. But for those people who are struggling, the holidays can be a particularly difficult time of year. You can create a holiday food box that will be directly distributed to families that will be delighted to receive them. Long after the food has been used will be the memories that people who did not know cared enough to assist in making their family holiday better.

Holiday Food Boxes can be dropped off at:
242 Hampshire Street
Lawrence, MA
8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
