 Innbassadors 3rd Annual Warm Up The Holidays Gift Drive


The Gift Of Warmth

The Innbassadors are once again teaming up this year to provide holiday gifts for every guest staying in Pine Street Inn’s shelters or using our Outreach services. Not only will the gifts provide physical warmth during the brutal winter season, they will surely warm the hearts of deserving recipients!


A Critical Need

This year, the need is greater than ever, and without your support, there would be no gifts for our guests. The Innbassadors must raise every dollar of the $13,000 it takes to cover the cost of these winter essentials.


Will You Help?

Please join the Innbassadors in bringing warmth and joy during the coldest days of the year. Your donation will meet a critical need for the most vulnerable members of our Boston community.

Pine Street Inn’s Innbassadors Raise $20,000!


At their third annual “Summer Inn the City” event, the Innbassadors raised close to $20,000 to help end homelessness.


Hosted by Ink Block and attended by over 250 people who sampled food and drink from partners, it was a great evening of South End community partnership. Attendees listened to the music of DJ OpynMynd as they socialized.

Pine Street Inn’s President Lyndia Downie spoke to the crowd, saying, “I look out and see the next generation of leaders in the fight 

to end homelessness. We started it, but everyone here, you are going to finish it.”


Corporate sponsors of Summer Inn the City include: Natixis Global Asset Management, Atwater Wealth ManagementBraemar Energy VenturesDeloittedunnhumby and Putnam Investments.


Our thanks to the vendors who provided the delicious food and refreshing drinks: Loco Taqueria and Oyster Bar, Whole Foods Market South End, swissbakers, Taza Chocolate, RIPE Bar Juice, Berkshire Mountain Distillers, Samuel Adams, 90+ Cellars, and Wanderlush.
