About Us

People Helping People is a non-profit, predominantly volunteer support program.

Our mission is to establish and sustain a community-wide effort to provide assistance to residents of the town of Burlington, Massachusetts who have a need for food, medicine, heat or utilities and to provide for holiday food baskets and gifts for children. PHP is the umbrella organization overseeing the Burlington Community Food Pantry, The Burlington Covenant for Basic Needs and the Holiday Program.

As a community, we strive to address the needs of those who find themselves in difficult financial circumstances by providing them with basic needs and more importantly compassion, understanding, and support.
