Victory Programs Wish Lists

Our Doors Remain OPEN Amid COVID-19 Crisis

During this precarious time it’s important to keep our 19 programs serving over 3,200 people a year well-stocked with the essential items listed below.  We are also seeking items for our Mobile Prevention Team, which is on the streets offering education and resources to individuals who are homeless.

Donations can be dropped off at our admin office (965 Massachusetts Ave, Boston, MA 02118) Mondays from 9am to noon and Thursdays from noon to 4pm. All items must be new and in original packaging.

“In this time of great uncertainty, I do know this for sure: We need to stay together, take care of one another, and look after our communities,” said Victory Programs’ Executive Director Sarah Porter.

Below is an updated list of high-demand items we’re currently accepting, including but not limited to:

Priority Pantry Items
Residential programs for individuals and families   

Priority Mobile Prevention Team Items
Street outreach

Priority Boston Living Center Items
Community center for people with HIV/AIDS

We have created an Amazon Wish List with the types of items we are currently looking for. Please note that due to availability we may not have been able to add everything listed above, and would still be interested in receiving items marked as unavailable. The brands included were based on Amazon’s options and do not indicate preference.

Boston Living Center Wish List

The BLC offers a wide range of services to our members. Sometimes it’s being able to give a new member some personal care items or a few household items to assist them in setting up a new home. In striving to always meet the needs of our members there are many items that are handy to have around the Center. There are also things that come up that would make the daily work run a little more smoothly for BLC staff.

Some of the items we need are small, some a little larger in scope. But all are much needed around the BLC. Please keep in mind as you read over the list and think about what you can give, that we don’t have a great deal of storage space and cannot accept all donations. Please give us a call at 617-236-1012 first to let us know what you would like to donate. Thanks.
