The most effective way to support FBMS’ mission this holiday season is through a monetary donation, which gives our agency the greatest flexibility in providing critical resources to local individuals and families who are experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness. Click here to donate.

You can also get your friends and family involved by holding a Facebook fundraiser for FBMS. Click here to get started.

During the holidays, we also encourage supporters to donate gift cards in lieu of presents. Gift cards give us flexibility when working with program participants to buy items they need, including toys for their kids. Gift cards can be dropped off at (or mailed to): Father Bill’s & MainSpring, 430 Belmont Street, Brockton, MA 02301.

You can also make an in-kind donation or hold a drive to bring holiday cheer to your neighbors in need. Every December, FBMS hosts Holiday Shopping Days at its emergency shelters in Quincy and Brockton. Click here to see which items are needed for our shopping days.

You can also shop for us and ship to us directly through Amazon. Click here to view our Amazon Holiday Wish List.
