Generic Ministry, Inc. is an all-volunteer organization that provides clothing, food, toiletries, blankets, and friendship to homeless and needy people in Boston. Two nights each week our well-stocked van delivers supplies to designated stops in the city, meeting directly with our homeless friends on the streets. Our goals are simple: to help destitute people make it through the night, and to engage people to help those in need.
Our volunteers and donors also perform the tasks needed for Generic Ministry to operate: sort and store clothing, organize and stock the van, make up to 120 lunches a week, organize clothing drives and fundraise. We are aided in our mission by schools, churches, and other institutions.
Generic Ministry, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization and operates on a shoe-string budget that covers the cost of maintaining, insuring and housing the van, and purchasing water, underwear, socks and other necessities. We receive no government funding; our donors are our sole financial support.
