Writing a check is only one way you can help the people we serve. Father Bill’s & MainSpring also accepts donations of goods and services, which in turn, reduce our costs. Download our Wish List for a list of current items needed to help those we serve.

Please call the Development office at 508-427-6448 to arrange a drop off at our Distribution Center location in Brockton. Whenever possible, we like to arrange for a photo opportunity with the donor so we may share with others via our publications and social media.

Running a drive for essential items is great way to involve friends, family, co-workers, or group members in supporting our mission. Members of our Development Team are available to advise you on how to most effectively run a drive. We can recommend items currently needed and, in some instances, can help develop materials or promote your drive on social media. At the culmination of your drive, we can also arrange for a staff person to come speak with your group.

If you are interested in running a drive to benefit FBMS, please review our Guidelines for Hosting a Third Party Fundraiser and complete our Third Party Fundraiser Form.

Ship directly to FBMS from Amazon! Visit our Amazon wish list page to order items needed for our shelter guests and housing participants.
