Two of our flagship programs and participants appreciate supply and gift card donations. Please see the Amazon Wish Lists for specific needs. In-kind donations can be shipped directly to the LBFE Boston main office (address on file with Amazon), or a team-building opportunity with a special supply drop-off to our main office in Boston can be arranged.

Laptop and Hotspot Setup
Each fall (September) Digital Dividends session, LBFE Boston appreciates volunteers who can help in set up Chromebook and wireless hotspots in preparation for our digital equity/digital literacy classes. Small groups (8 or less) are welcome to our Boston office for this service project.
Make Holiday or Seasonal Cards for Older Adults
In November and December, LBFE Boston distributes holiday gifts to hundreds of isolated older adults. A homemade card from a caring person to accompany that gift can really brighten a day and make someone feel loved and remembered. Individuals, community groups, and corporations are invited to participate.
