Family Volunteer Opportunity               

People volunteer for many reasons with many different schedules. Please click on the situation that best fits your interest for more information.

Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities are typically offered in Adult Education, Youth Education, Food Pantry, Mobile Market, Thrift Shop and Administration. Most of our ongoing volunteer opportunities are once a week for a minimum of three months and you need to be 16 or older.

Short Term Volunteer Opportunities are typically offered in Thrift Shop and Mobile Market. Most of our short term volunteer opportunities are for a minimum of 20 hours.

Under age 16 Volunteer Opportunities are offered in the Thrift Shop, the Thrift Shop Group, and Baby Sitting. For ongoing or short term opportunities, youth volunteers need to be in fifth grade or above (no younger than ten years old) and must be accompanied by one volunteering adult for every child. For the Thrift Shop Group, youth volunteers need to be accompanied by at least one adult for every two children.

Youths of any age can run a Food, Clothing or Fund Drive (there is a form that will allow Beverly Bootstraps to sign off on community service hours for this activity).

Group Volunteer Opportunities are offered in the Thrift Shop. The Thrift Shop Group volunteer opportunity is great for groups from companies, clubs or even families with older children. Anyone 16 or older is welcome. Youth volunteers age eleven and up are too, as long as they are accompanied by at least one adult for every two children.

Throughout the year we look to groups to help out with our one-time needs such us handing out Thanksgiving turkeys or new backpacks, sorting Food Drives or hosting a Food Drive. These opportunities are typically filled three months in advance.

Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator by calling our office at 978-927-1561 or emailing for more information.

You can also visit the North Shore United Way Volunteer Hub website if none of these areas fit your needs.

In FY18, our volunteers worked over 16,300 hours valued at over $509,300! We couldn't do it without you!
