Please volunteer with the BAMSI Brown Bag Program by helping with food sorting, assembling grocery bags of food and/or bag distribution to local Brockton residents in need. The program takes place monthly on the third Thursday of each month at Teen Challenge in the Multi Purpose Auditorium. They start around 7:00am and finish up around 12:00pm; you can volunteer for one hour or the whole morning, what ever fits your schedule. We appreciate any help you can provide to help make a difference with food insecurity in the Brockton community! Below is a description and approximate time of each shift.

  • 07:00 AM to 07:30 AM You will assist with unloading the semi-truck of over 18,000 pounds of food. This will be very physical work that will take some heavy lifting.
  • 07:30 AM to 09:00 AM You will take the unloaded food and be a part of an assembly line to package the food.
  • 09:00 AM to 10:30 AM Help load bags onto the truck, drive to Caffrey Towers, where you will unload the bags from the truck & deliver to residents. (755 Crescent Street)

Mission Statement

The mission of Old Colony Elder Services (OCES) is to support the independence and dignity of elders and individuals with disabilities by providing essential information and services that promote healthy and safe living. OCES has a variety of volunteer programs including the Nutrition Program, Money Management Program, and RSVP of Plymouth County.


OCES' Nutrition Program is there to reduce hunger and food insecurity, promote socialization, and to promote the health and well-being of older adults and individuals with disabilities.

OCES' Money Management Program (MMP) helps older adults and individuals with disabilities in helping to manage their finances and pay their bills. The MMP program provides confidential assistance in managing a budget and keeping finances organized.

RSVP of Plymouth County (RSVP), a program of OCES, is the Plymouth County chapter AmeriCorps Seniors. RSVP works with our service partners by utilizing the financial, infrastructure and human resources of RSVP. We recruit and interview volunteers age 55 and older, and align their abilities and interests to meet the needs of the community as provided by the service partners.
