Our education programs give adults and children help to reach their educational goals. Children participate in the After-School-Homework Club where they receive help with their homework and after school learning based supervision. Adults can take HiSET test preparation, ESOL, Literacy and Job Readiness classes which can improve their career and salary potential.
Many right here in our community are food insecure and Beverly Bootstraps provides food at no cost in several ways: through the Food Pantry where Beverly and Manchester-by-the-Sea residents can come get much needed groceries, through the Mobile Market, a travelling free fresh farmers market and through the Summer Food Program which helps bridge the food gap while school is out by providing extra food to families with children during the summer.
The Thrift Shop sells high-quality, used clothing and household items at bargain prices. Not only does this help our clients fulfill their basic needs but the proceeds from sales also support all of the Beverly Bootstraps programs.
Beverly Bootstraps depends on volunteers to staff the front desk at the main office. That volunteer is the face and voice of Beverly Bootstraps as the first line of contact with most of our clients, donors, visitors and volunteers.
Under 16 & Special Projects
Typically most of our volunteer positions are for people 16 years or older, but we have a special list of activities that children under the age of 16 can participate in. In addition, there are often special projects that need the help of volunteers to complete. These might include help sorting and packing back-to-school supplies, or hanging posters for an upcoming event. The projects are a great opportunity for people who can't commit to a long term, consistent volunteer schedule.
You can also visit the North Shore United Way Volunteer Hub website if none of these areas fit your needs.
In FY15, our volunteers worked over 15,300 hours valued at over $413,700! We couldn't do it without you!
