Somerville Homeless Coalition

Host a Fundraiser to Benefit SHC

Host a Fundraiser for SHC

Businesses and Other Groups

If your company, club or religious group is putting on an event and would like to donate the proceeds to a worthy cause, please consider the Somerville Homeless Coalition.  From seasonal celebrations to special shopping days to benefit theatre performances, businesses and organizations have set up countless enjoyable events to benefit the work our agency does.  Canned food drives are also a popular way to channel the civic-mindedness of your staff, members and clients.  We welcome all companies and community groups into our circle of supporters and are eager to collaborate with you on events that generate interest in your business or organization as well as support our charitable work.


Individuals can host fundraisers, too.  Neighbors have held block parties and collected non-perishable food and donations, families have designated the proceeds of yard sales to the SHC, and friends have hosted parties to generate interest and support for the work of the Somerville Homeless Coalition. We’d love for you to have a house party in our honor.  It’s easy to get friends together for a movie, a cook-out, or just a low-key gathering with coffee, cocktails, or desserts, and ask if they might give to our cause about which you feel strongly.  We would be happy to have a staff person attend your house party or event to describe the great ways we’re helping to end homelessness in our community and the vital role everyone can play in this work.

Please let us know if you are planning an event.

We can provide literature, help promote the event among our supporters, and generate publicity for your efforts. Please contact Peg Drisko for more information at 617-623-6111 or by e-mail at: [email protected] Thank you! We could not do our work without your generous support.
