Toiletry Drive for Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House

  • Monday, April 3, 2023 - Monday, May 29
  • All Day Event

The Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House is a non-profit providing wraparound services including case management, rent and utility assistance, mental health support, and assistance connecting to other social services. We have an in-house library and computer lab open to the public. We also have an after-school program, summer camp, and another youth programming.

Our food pantry is one of the highest-volume food pantries in Cambridge, serving residents of The Port neighborhood as well as the greater Boston area. We’re open four days a week and serve 60-80 people per day. We have over 1,000 families currently registered and 400-500 regular (2x/month) users. We receive and distribute almost 40,000 pounds of food per month! We work with several food recovery programs in the area such as Food For Free and Lovin’ Spoonfuls which facilitate donations of marked-out goods from grocery stores and farms. We are almost entirely volunteer-staffed and rely on support from the community and our partners to make it all happen!

  • Shampoo

  • Hand soap or bar soap
  • Leftover hotel samples shampoo/lotion/conditioner
