    volunteering at pine street inn

    Our parish has committed to volunteering at the Pine Street Men’s Inn one night a month throughout 2012. Because of our proximity to the shelter, we often are assigned evenings that are difficult for the Inn’s other groups to fill. Next month we will be at the Men’s Inn on Saturday, September 8.

We will be interacting with the agency’s clients at Pine Street by plating meals in a cafeteria-style setting at the shelter. If you would like to join us from 4:45 to 6:30 p.m. on Harrison Avenue in the South End, please contact Mark Lippolt at for more information. Some parking is available at the shelter.
