How you helpVolunteers play an integral role at Beverly Bootstraps, and we depend on them to be able to provide the important programs we offer. In FY18, our volunteers worked over 16,300 hours valued at over $509,000! We couldn’t do it without you!
About usBeverly Bootstraps was first established in 1992 as a Food Pantry in the basement of the First Baptist Church. With the generous support of our donors, volunteers and the community at large, we have grown to be a leading social service agency on the North Shore. While recognizing that people need food in hand to stem immediate hunger, our clients also need the opportunity to be embraced by the community, educated about the resources available and empowered to improve their own lives. As we continue to grow, our commitment to the community remains the same: to provide critical resources to families and individuals so that they may achieve self-sufficiency.
