During this season of Thanks and Giving, we are excited to celebrate the amazing volunteers, donors, and partners who have given their time and resources to support our community.

Thank you for being a part of the Community of Doers that makes our mission possible.  Volunteers and donors like you have cleaned parks and beaches, equipped students to learn, fed neighbors experiencing food insecurity, and so much more.  You've sewn pillowcases, grown produce, baked dog biscuits, delivered meals, and spent thousands of hours building a stronger, more resilient community.  

Thank you for helping SPUR good deeds with us.
Volunteer with SPUR today!
With the winter holidays right around the corner, we're gearing up for the SPUR Holiday Cheer Drive, which provides hundreds of local children, as well as adults experiencing homelessness with winter essentials and meaningful holiday gifts.  By working with social workers, food pantry directors, homeless education liaisons, and guidance counselors to identify individuals who need help during the holidays, each wishlist contains something the specific recipient wants, something they need, something to wear, and something to read.

Starting on Monday, November 14, you can sponsor a wishlist online.  Browse wish lists by age, gender, or even by a specific toy and the selected wish lists will be emailed to the sponsor.  Or, if you prefer to select a wishlist in person, find us at Harbor Holidays at the Boston Yacht Club on Friday, November 18 or Saturday, November 19.  

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. 
Garden Winter Prep
It's time to put the SPUR Community Roots Gardens at St. Andrew's and Temple Sinai 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 Sunday, November 6.  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, November 29 to strengthen our Community of Doers through your generosity. 

Don't want to wait for Giving Tuesday? Make a gift now.
We've got an office full of candy and we need your help!  Join us in the SPUR office this weekend to decorate bags and fill them with candy to be given out with grab-and-go meals at local shelters. Make your weekend a little sweeter with us!

Volunteers ages 13-18 can sign up to join us on Friday or Saturday at a special teen volunteer opportunity.  Volunteers of all ages can sign up to join us on Sunday.
