Keeping you up to date on the many ways Beverly Bootstraps provides critical resources to families and individuals so they may achieve self-sufficiency.
Kids making memories

One of our programs that typically gets little attention, except if you have a child in it, is Summer Camps. If it weren't for the generous support from several area camp programs and donors, our clients' children would not be able to enjoy this traditional summer past time. For those families that struggle keeping up with bills and putting food on the table, camp is an extravagance that they just can't afford. We thank the following camps for enabling these children to have the same memory making experiences as so many of their peers:

Exciting News:

September is Hunger Action Month and Beverly Bootstraps invites you to Step into Action! Walk, run or ride at your own pace on your own schedule when you join our virtual walkathon. Ask your family and friends to support your effort to prevent hunger.

Register for Beverly Bootstraps' Step into Action Virtual Walkathon now! 

Then just finish your steps by October 22. You'll be in on the action and raising money for a great cause.

How you can help:

Families and Groups can give back
You are always needed to help get toiletry bags and snack bags ready. This is a great way to teach children or employees about giving back. You can shop for and purchase the contents, then bring them here to take a tour and prepare the bags.

Your group can also help the Thrift Shop get merchandise ready to go on the sale floor. 

And now that the Weekend Food Bag is rolling out to all Beverly Public Schools, you can also help prepare these bags.

Please email for more information or to schedule a time.

Thank you!

Thank you to all of you have donated to and volunteered to help with our Back-to-School Bonanza backpack program.
We recently gave over 600 backpacks to local school children in need. Please check out the video.
