Brookline Thrives Volunteer Opportunities

Brookline Thrives 2020/2021 Volunteer Opportunities

We're so excited to be back this school year. Things may be a little different due to COVID-19, but our mission remains the same. Help feed kids over the weekend so they return to school (wherever that may be) better prepared to learn. 

NEW LOCATION: To allow for safe, socially distant packing, we have temporarily relocated operations to United Parish Church, 210 Harvard St., Brookline. Please use the entrance on Marion Street.

NOTE: This list is long and is organized by volunteer role. To look by date, click on Calendar View at the top of the list.

NEW Volunteer Requirements:

  • All volunteers must be 16 years of age or older.
  • Volunteers younger than 18 years must have parent/caregiver permission to volunteer.
  • All volunteers are required to answer a few COVID-related health questions prior to volunteering.
  • All volunteers must wear a clean face mask and gloves, which can be provided.
  • Only those signed up for a shift may volunteer - this is to aid in contact tracing should the need ever arise.

We have several volunteer opportunities: 

Bag packing - every Wednesday morning from 9-10:30am and evening from 7-8:30pm, and Thursday mornings from 9-10:30am.

Inventory unloads - help restock Thrives every Wednesday from 3:30-4:30pm.

School deliveries - every Thursday afternoon from 1:30-3:30pm.

Remote bag distribution - Friday mid- to late afternoons (see below schedule)
