Since 2020, we’ve been supporting our community members in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by monetary size, but by more qualitative measurements such as the scale and effectiveness of our efforts. Just imagine what we can achieve together!

Anchor Garden

Families come in all shapes and sizes, and every family operates and functions in their own unique, but if there's one constant that should be present in every family besides the general love that family brings, it's access to healthy and nutritious foods, it's the ability to provide for your family the one true essential in life: sustenance.  We are proud to offer our members fresh vegetables and herbs from our garden beds.

Back to School Back Packs 2020

We were so excited and fortunate to partner with SPUR as well as a group of Swampscott educators and Anchor Board members to provide our families with over 30 backpacks full of school supplies. #weareinthistogether #ittakesavillage

Thanksgiving Meals

Our first annual Thanksgiving meal distribution. We distributed meals to over 100 families, feeding over 350 individuals for the holiday.  Families received a turkey, fresh fruits and veggies, flour, sugar, butter, pies, stuffing mix as well as non perishable items.

Winter Bags

Our Winter Bag distribution was a true community effort.  Each guest that visited us or had a delivery during the last week of December received this bag of items to keep them warm, healthy and full.   Bags included Stop & Shop gift cards, blankets, socks, hats & mittens, beef stew, chicken soup, pancake mix, maple syrup, muffing mix, cookies, popcorn, candy, cough drops & chap stick.
