Harvard Square Homeless Shelter Winter Break Volunteering

We’re so excited to continue offering our own form of hospitality and warmth to our guests this winter. But in order to operate our shelters throughout the coldest months of the year, we will need your help. Over Harvard’s Winter Break (12/19 – 1/23), the majority of our regular volunteers are away from the Cambridge area. And so, over Winter Break, we turn to our community members and students staying on campus to help staff our shelters for our guests.
If you’ll be in the Cambridge area anytime between December 19th and January 23rd, we could really use your help as a volunteer! Signing up for multiple shifts is encouraged. You can find more specific instructions on the sign-up spreadsheet using this link https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17XHxax6Xq9gK-TDEthMZyfaz2–Q49T2MCcUvWG0N6E/edit?usp=sharing. Anyone can volunteer with us – no previous shelter experience is necessary.
