99 Restaurants

99 Customers “Have a Heart” for Pine Street
Once again, the 99 Restaurants generously hosted their “Have a Heart” raffle at 50 locations in eastern Massachusetts for the chance to win Green Monster seats at a World Champions Red Sox game. The raffle raised $118,500 to benefit Pine Street. A big thank you to 99 Restaurants and all the patrons who participated!


AvalonBay Teams Up with Pine Street
Over the past few months, through multiple service days in our kitchen, the team from AvalonBay
Communities has helped prepare thousands of meals for our guests and tenants. We are also grateful for AvalonBay’s support as a sponsor of our 50th Anniversary Home Remedy!

Pine Street Marathon Team

Making Strides to the Boston Marathon!
For many months, five Pine Street runners have trained hard and raised funds for the B.A.A. 2019 Boston Marathon sponsored by John Hancock. We are so proud of these athletes who not only helped shine a light on our work, but also raised a total of nearly $75,000 that will go to the Boston’s Way Home Fund and help us build 200 new units of housing. Thank you, team! We are also grateful to John Hancock Marathon Non-Profit Program for providing five bibs for our team.

Pine Street Harvard Volunteers

A Lesson in Generosity
Students and faculty from the Harvard Graduate School of Education have supported Pine Street in various ways over the past years. At its annual faculty and staff holiday party, nearly 400 people bought raffle tickets, which raised more than $3,000 for Pine Street. This annual event has raised more than $8,000 over the three years! One attendee who won a television in the raffle generously donated it to Pine Street, where it is very much appreciated and enjoyed by our tenants in one of our houses. We are also grateful that staff have volunteered in our kitchen!
