Coming Together to HELP Families in Need!
During this challenging time, Boston PAL is committed to working with Mayor Walsh, Commissioner Gross, BPD's Bureau of Community Engagement and our community partners to help fulfill the most critical needs in our Boston communities.
Join us and our partners for a special initiative focused on providing gift cards for meals & supplies to our most vulnerable families. Help us serve Boston families in need!
Together You Gave
THANK YOU to all our friends and supporters who rose to the challenge and came together to help struggling Boston families in need of food and supplies. We surpassed our goal and met The Dwyer Foundation's challenge!
Through the success of #GivingTuesdayNow, we are able to provide an additional 300 families with grocery gift cards.

PAL fosters a culture of trust and respect between the community and the Boston Police Department through programs that promote character development, improve educational outcomes, and reduce crime.
PAL makes it possible...
“Our programs operate throughout all Boston neighborhoods. Thousands of children and young people benefit each year from PAL resources. From youth/ police dialogues to basketball games, from the Junior Police Academy to flashlight walks, from book clubs to boxing lessons – Boston youth are interacting with police every day. PAL makes this possible”.

PAL currently supports over 40 programs, as well as various activities and events citywide. A few examples of signature PAL programs include:
