Winter Wish List

‘Tis the Season After the Season

The holidays are over, and the New Year has begun. Our clients have felt the care and warmth from our community – your holiday gifts have been unwrapped and your donations of cold weather gear have already been distributed on the streets by our Mobile Prevention Team. And, thanks to your financial support, Victory Programs is growing to meet the increased need for our programs and services.

Unfortunately, after the holidays there’s a huge drop-off in support. It’s understandable . . . but the individuals and families we serve are in need year round. We will always need socks and all sorts of cold weather gear. We will always need hygiene supplies. And, in order to serve the growing numbers of people who need us, we will always rely on our caring community’s generous cash contributions.

Please consider making a gift to Victory Programs today to ensure that families and individuals in crisis can continue to turn to us for housing, health, recovery, and hope.

On our Winter Wish List, you’ll see items requested by those we serve. You can see the complete list below or by visiting our Amazon Gift Registry.

If you order through our Registry, the items will be sent directly to us. All donations can be sent to 404 S. Huntington Ave Boston, MA 02130.
