If your business or community group would like to support Family Promise Metrowest, there are many ways to volunteer at the FPM Center or sponsor an activity that benefits the families.

Sponsor a product drive: Just like in your own family, there are changing needs throughout the year. Back to school, summer break, moving into a new home and to just name a few. During each of these times, families in our program can use additional items to help with the transitions.  When you organize a drive, you have a positive impact on families and our community. Past drives have included personal care products, cleaning supplies, and a hats and mitten drive to get through the winter months. Please contact Amy at amy@familypromisemetrowest.org to learn more about current drives. 

Food and meals for families: If your group enjoys cooking, we welcome you to prepare an evening meal for the families in shelter. The group plans the menu, purchases the food, and then preps and cooks the meal to be delivered by 5:00pm. Please contact Danays at danays@familypromisemetrowest.org to learn more about helping with meals. 

Form a team for our Walk to End Homelessness: If your group enjoys getting out in the community and outside, form a team and join us for our annual Walk to End Homelessness. Teams commit to raising funds together to support families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. We work with teams to help with fundraising ideas. This is a family fun community event which includes food, music and activities for the children. If you are interested in learning more, contact Shannon at shannon@familypromisemetrowest.org.

Plan a Party for The Families: From finding the location, preparing a meal, decorating, and providing childcare, these events are very popular with families. This is a great multi-generational volunteering opportunity or an opportunity for multiple groups to work together toward a common goal. Help us create an unforgettable experience for everyone involved!

Other activities welcome: If your group has an idea they would like to share for a volunteer activity, we welcome the opportunity to offer skills and expertise with the families. In the past, we had a dental group provide cleanings and education, a local bank that provided classes in budgeting, and a community group offer to help move a family. All offers are appreciated!
