Bringing joy to others is something that we find lifts our spirits too.  While the season may feel strange and different this year, we are hard at work getting ready to support over 500 local children as well as adults experiencing homelessness through the SPUR Holiday Cheer Drive!  

This year sponsoring a Bundle of Cheer will be easier than ever thanks to a new website where sponsors can browse and select wish lists by age, gender, or even by a specific toy.  The selected wish lists will be emailed to the sponsor to shop from and then return the completed Bundle of Cheer to the SPUR office.

Join us to SPUR holiday cheer starting later this month and keep an eye out for volunteer opportunities to help sort and wrap Bundles of Cheer at the SPUR office. 
Fall Yard Clean Up
Come together with family and friends to clear fall yard debris for neighbors who need a hand and are counting on us. This small act helps keep neighbors with mobility challenges safer when using walkways and sidewalks as the weather gets colder and wetter. Volunteers of all ages are needed to lend a hand at homes in Lynn and Swampscott on Saturday, November 14 and at homes in Salem and Marblehead on Saturday, November 28.  Learn more and sign up today.
Garden Winter Prep
It's time to put the SPUR Community Roots Garden at St. Andrew's to bed for the winter! After a busy growing season, covering our raised garden beds protects them from extreme winter weather so that they are able to warm faster in the spring and ensures that nutrients in the soil will not be lost to run-off.  Join us to clean and cover the garden on Saturday, November 14.  Learn more and sign up today.
On #GivingTuesday, we celebrate the collective impact that we can have when ordinary people come together to do extraordinary things.
After the tumult of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday marks a moment for us to give to the causes that matter most to us.  Please join SPUR on Tuesday, December 1 to strengthen our Community of Doers through your generosity. 

Don't want to wait for Giving Tuesday? Make a gift now.
