Thanksgiving has always been a special holiday for Father Bill’s & MainSpring. This year, we will serve meals to guests of our main emergency shelters in Quincy and Brockton, and we will expand our meal-delivery program to provide dinners to anyone in our service area in need.

Because we are unable to prepare meals on-site due to COVID-19, we are proud to partner with local catering companies to provide meals to approximately 1,000 individuals, the largest single-day meal total in our agency’s history. We have established a special Thanksgiving Fund to help cover these additional expenses, with a goal of raising $15,000.

Your Gift Will Be Doubled: To help us meet our goal, two anonymous donors have generously offered to match all donations to our Thanksgiving Fund, dollar for dollar, up to $7,500!

We have reached capacity for Thanksgiving volunteers, so we are asking individuals and groups who are looking to make a difference to consider supporting our Thanksgiving Fund. (100% of excess Thanksgiving costs will be directed to our ongoing efforts to support individuals and families at-risk of or experiencing homelessness.)
