Join us for the 23rd annual Northampton Shelter Sunday, to be held on October 26 from 10:00am to 4:00pm at Memorial Hall on Main Street in Northampton.  

Shelter Sunday is a special day each year when community volunteers go door to door collecting donations to support local homeless shelters, emergency housing, and survival services. The funds raised on this one day help hundreds of homeless individuals and families obtain essential services. Last year, we raised nearly $50,000 in Northampton, and this year's goal is to raise $50,000 by enlisting at least 100 volunteers to canvass the entire city of Northampton.

All of the homeless shelters are full throughout the year, and the waiting lists are long. However, Northampton has shown its commitment to building a stronger community by helping those with the most need.

The Shelter Sunday Coalition consists of six local organizations that serve the homeless. Proceeds directly benefit the individuals and families that these organizations serve. More information on these agencies can be found on the Participating Agencies page of this website.  Each of these organizations is committed to helping the homeless in our community.

With your help, we will continue to meet the needs of our neighbors in need. Thank you for your support!


"The mission of Shelter Sunday is to raise funds for a coalition of nonprofit agencies providing food, shelter, and other services to people in the Northampton area who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, and to involve community members in supporting these important services."
