Many Helping Hands 365
Help Many Helping Hands 365 harness the power of community service to inspire and build an equitable community in Cambridge.
Since 2011, Many Helping Hands 365 (MHH365) has harnessed the power of community service to inspire and cultivate an equitable community in Cambridge, most notably through the annual Cambridge MLK Day of Service and Learning. Donations during MLK Day will be shared with MHH365’s key community partners, My Brother’s Keeper Cambridge and the YWCA Cambridge.
On MLK Day, thousands of volunteers from all backgrounds come together to honor the life, the work, and the legacy of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., following his exhortation: "Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve." The work of MHH365 and the 1000’s of volunteers reaches more than 10,000 children, teens, and adults annually, through partnerships with more than 90 non-profits and agencies. The pandemic year has not only impacted the ability to come together physically, but underscores the inequality and injustice in our community. MHH365 remains dedicated to raising public awareness of our community’s needs and helping those who are most vulnerable.
MHH365’s other community programs include the annual Cambridge gun buyback (Gift Cards for Guns, a Safer Homes, Safer Community Initiative), two weeks of Earth Day events and programming, and the Mothers’ Day Project collecting diapers and feminine hygiene products for 30 shelters, food pantries and women’s programs. MHH365 created and maintains an online directory of year round volunteer needs in Cambridge.
As a volunteer-created and managed organization, MHH365 relies on the gifts from individuals, corporations, and foundations, to operate and continue mobilizing action all year round.
