Dinner for the Center for Homeless Veterans
17 Court St.
Boston, MA  02481
United States of America

Rotary members are more than welcome to arrive early to the event if they would like to see the renovations.  Since meal service begins at 4:00pm, anyone interested in touring the building can come in at 3:00pm.  You’ll notice in the details that the arrival time will say 3:45pm, and that will be the arrival time for everyone – tourers or just servers. 


We do not have any other projects available that day, though if interest is higher than what is needed for service – which can go up to a maximum of 10 people – let me know and I think what we can do is have a few people simply sit in the main hall area and play cards or something similar with the residents who are either waiting for or are finished eating.   


Would you have time to speak by phone on November 2nd or November 3rd?  I’d like to go over the menu of items and confirm everything with you. 


After you review the details below, please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.




  • The number of people required for the dinner meal is 10 – please sign in on the roster when you arrive.
  • Volunteers will be utilized both behind the line serving a prepared meal to the Veteran residents, assisting mobility-disabled Veterans with their trays and providing wait-staff support in the dining hall.
  • Dinner is served from 4:00pm to 5:00pm.
  • Please plan to arrive 15 minutes prior (3:45pm) to the beginning of the shift for a briefing from the staff.
  • Hair must be tied back.

  • Aprons and gloves will be provided.
