Thanks to all of our friends who helped to make our second annual Uplift Yourself with Laughter fundraiser on March 28, 2015, a success!  The event raised over $3,000 to support our efforts! 

We look forward to another successful event next year!

 Our Mission

Those Who Can for Those In Need, Inc., is a Winthrop-based non-profit linking the North Shore Community with Resources and Volunteer Opportunities in the areas of Elderly, Losing a Loved One, Children, Low-Income, and Homelessness.

In The Spotlight
Each issue of our newsletter will feature a local organization serving our community!
Our Featured Partner for this edition of our newsletter is My Brother’s Table.

Founded in 1982, My Brother’s Table is the largest soup kitchen on the North Shore.  MBT has provided over 2.9 million hot, free meals and outreach to men, women and children in need.  Last year alone MBT served over 126,000 meals.
 
 Since the second year of operation MBT has been open 365 days a year, through snow and ice storms, power outages and other difficult events. My Brother’s Table has been open over 10,000 consecutive days, offering free meals to everyone who comes to our door, regardless of race, color, creed or sex.  MBT serves free meals Monday through Friday, 11:45 AM - 12:30 PM and 5:30 - 7:15 PM.  They also serve on Saturday and Sunday 2:30 - 4:15 PM.
 
 My Brother’s Table has been able to provide meals and a wide range of other services to those in need in our community through the support of donors and over 2,500 volunteers each year.  For information about volunteering at My Brother’s Table, email their volunteer coordinator at volunteercoordinator@mybrotherstable.org.
 
 In addition to serving meals seven days a week, MBT provides meals to homebound individuals, participates in a family dinner program, provides meals to at risk-seniors, and hosts a free weekly medical clinic.
 
 Today the problems of hunger and poverty continue to exist in Lynn and across the country.
 
My Brother’s Table is entirely funded by private donors and businesses.  They do not solicit or accept government grants and are not a United Way affiliate.  MBT relies heavily on donated food from supermarkets, restaurants, food drives, and individuals for most of each meal served.
 
Is your group looking for a speaker? Executive Director Dianne Kuzia Hills and other staff members from the Table are available to speak to groups of all sizes.  If you are interested about knowing email dianne@mybrotherstable.org.

Children's Friend and Family Services seeks volunteer mentors ages 21 and older to be matched with one youth mentee from the North Shore. Youth are between the ages of 5 and 18, and as a mentor you would meet every week for at least two hours to establish a one-to-one relationship that over a year’s time matures into a genuine, caring friendship. Our mentors – like the individuals and families we serve – come from a variety of backgrounds and professions. Whether it’s taking a walk in the park, watching a movie, cooking or just talking on the phone – when you take time out of your day to enrich the life of a child, you’re making a real difference. Our current program waitlist has 29 youth, there is a significant need! If you are interested or would like to know more, please visit http://childrensfriend.net/services/youth-mentoring/ or contact Samantha Alves, Director of Youth Mentoring at salves@childrensfriend.net or call 978-219- 1528.
