Bring warmth and comfort to Victory Programs!

Victory Programs relies on our generous community to help clients stay warm and healthy, especially during these harsh winter months. Right now, the Mobile Prevention Team and the Boston Living Center need socks, scarves, long johns, granola bars, toiletries, and any of the other items listed here:

You can help our clients this winter season by purchasing these items and donating them to Victory Programs. We’ll make sure they get into the hands of clients who need them.

If you purchased an in-kind donation through our Amazon Wish List, thank you! Your donations are already keeping clients safe and warm. Unfortunately, Amazon is not able to share donor information, so please contact Shauna Helton at or call 617.541.0222, ext. 146 to receive an acknowledgement letter. Thank you again for your compassionate support during this difficult time.

In the future, we will remedy this by creating a custom Registry rather than a Wish List so we have way better control over the process.


GIFT CARDS: We hope you will consider gift cards as your best, easiest, and safest giving option for the more than 3,200 individuals and families in our care. The following retailers are preferred: Amazon, Old Navy, Stop & Shop, Target, and Walgreens. Gift cards allow our clients to choose what they want and need for themselves and their children. Please consider purchasing multiple cards starting at a value of $20 each.


AMAZON: Another no-fuss option is our Amazon Wish List where you can purchase gifts requested by our clients, and the items will automatically be shipped to Victory Programs. Please note we’ve added some gift cards available through Amazon for purchase, but a few only have options at the $25 level or higher, so you may want to buy directly from the retailer in some cases.


You may also shop in stores for items detailed on our Wish List below broken down by adults and children in our residential programs, members of the Boston Living Center living with HIV/AIDS, and our Mobile Prevention Team for distribution to individuals living on the streets. All items must be new and in the original packaging, and neutral and solid colors are preferred for clothing and winter wear items.


Gift cards and other items you wish to MAIL should be sent to:
Victory Programs, c/o Development, 965 Massachusetts Ave., Boston, MA, 02118.


Items may also be DROPPED OFF at one of the following locations. Masks are required upon entry:
Victory Programs, c/o Development, 965 Massachusetts Ave., Boston,  M-F, between 9am – 5pm
Boston Living Center, c/o Development, 29 Stanhope St., Boston, M-F, between 9:30am – 4pm
