  • Monetary donations are always appreciated. 100% of the monetary donations received are used for operating the Dwelling Place (i.e. rent, trash disposal, paper goods, utensils, tablecloths, and upkeep of the kitchen and the Stannard dining room). We are a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and donations are tax deductible as allowed by law.

    Donations are accepted by mail to the church care of the Dwelling Place (523 Main Street, Woburn MA 01801) or electronically through this PayPal link (you must have a PayPal account to donate this way): Dwelling Place PayPal link

  • Bulk prepackaged food that we can distribute “to go” to our guests (i.e. single serving peanut butter, beef jerky, crackers, desserts, etc.)
