Gay for Good Boston volunteering opportunities

I routinely publish volunteering opportunities from the Boston Chapter of Gay for Good. but recently realized it had been several months since I last gave this group a shout out.  G4G, as I like to refer to them, may be the perfect option for you if you’re looking to meet people or would like to volunteer but cannot commit to a particular charity. Each month, Gay For Good Boston selects a different non-profit to donate time for a community service project and they arrange all the logistics. There is no money required and anyone willing to give their time and energy are welcome, but note that most opportunities fill quickly.

Save the date for these upcoming volunteering projects by G4G:

  • Monday, August 21 – Boston Living Center
  • Saturday, September 9 – Emerald Necklace
  • Saturday, September 16 – Boston Harbor Islands
  • Saturday, October 14 – Boston Harbor Islands
