Generic Ministry Inc.

Serving the Homeless and Needy in Boston

Generic Ministry is a group of volunteers that collects and distributes food, clothing and supplies to the homeless and needy in Boston. We are a not-for-profit organization that recognizes that many people in our community need help and we do what we can to help them.


Scott Muldoon and I served between 45-50 folks this Tuesday night at the Tremont street (Park Street area) location. All were appreciative and well behaved. Combination of known and new folks. As usual jeans, hoodies, underwear and certain toiletries were in high demand plus sandwich bags and water.
We also distributed ~10 blankets. Your donations and support at work. Thank You !!

Generic Ministry volunteers brought a meal, clean clothing and toiletries to our street friends this past Tuesday and Wednesday nights. They were grateful as always. Here's a pic of master-distributor (and Generic Ministry president!) Don Leathe searching in our van for proper clothing. We're in need of MEN's JACKETS (as well as *any* other adult clothing donations if you have any!) Please share this post to spread the word. ... See MoreSee Less
