We Are Many Helping Hands 365
Many Helping Hands 365 makes Cambridge a better place for everyone by increasing local volunteerism and creating service events like the Cambridge MLK Day of Service. When many hands come together, all of us benefit.
Come Lend Your Helping Hands
Join Us For A Day of Service
MLK DAY OF SERVICE
On MLK Day, thousands of volunteers come together for an afternoon of service in Central Square. This event is now one of the largest community service events in New England.
CAMBRIDGE EARTH DAY
Celebrate the day by lending your hands with one of Cambridge’s environmental organizations. We can help you find a way to make our community a little greener for everyone.
GUN BUY BACK
The annual Cambridge Gift Cards for Guns, a Safer Homes, Safer Cambridge Initiative, is focused on getting unwanted and unsecured guns out of homes where they pose a serious risk.
