Helpful information for the first shift:
  • Volunteers will be working at the Haven from Hunger building, located at 71 Wallis Street in Peabody, approximately two blocks from the post office.
  • Parking is in short supply – please park by the cemetery or on Elm Street. Please do not park in the Luso Credit Union bank parking lot, or our parking lot, as we need that space for to load items into volunteer vehicles. You may be towed if you park in the Luso lot.
  • Dress for the weather!  Our operations have been moved outside so please wear gear that can withstand the elements and comfortable shoes. Masks are required. 
  • Attention to confidentiality and respect for all clients, staff and volunteers is required.
