Shelter Sunday is October 15 this year. This is the one-weekend citywide fundraiser to support four programs which help the neediest in our community, those who are homeless, threatened with homelessness, or hungry. The programs are: the Friends of Hampshire County Homeless (for the Interfaith Winter Shelter), the Grove Street Inn (year-round shelter managed by ServiceNet), the Single Room Occupancy Project (Center for Human Development program providing supports for people in single-room rentals), and MANNA Meals (providing free community meals several days a week & on some major holidays). This year it will be centered on a citywide mailing, and collection sites at a number of major food stores and delicatessens. Please donate as generously as you can: it’s crucial to our organization budgets, and thus to our clients.
