Single Stop

Winter Coat Drive
Each year, Single Stop collaborates with Anton's Cleaners to collect adult and child-size warm winter coats. Collected coats are brought to Anton’s Cleaners for cleaning and then given to a network of more than 90 distribution partners made up of local nonprofits, social service agencies, and schools to ensure the coats are given to those who really need them, free of charge. This drive begins October 14, 2019 and ends December 6, 2019. Please drop off gently used coats to Single Stop, Room D-206.

The Single Stop program at Bunker Hill Community College focuses on connecting students to state and federal financial resources and local community services.  The aim is to help student surmount economic barriers, continue with their education and move toward economic mobility with the ultimate goal of ending cycles of poverty.

Single Stop aid students in applying for benefits such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), offers referrals for those with housing issues, helps with health insurance applications, provides financial literacy classes, and helps students to advocate for themselves when applying for resources.

Since 2012, The Greater Boston Food Bank has partnered with Single Stop to sponsor monthly Mobile Markets for our campus community and veterans. We have been fortunate to be working with food rescue programs such as Food Link and Food for Free, which support our students through ongoing donations.  We have a new food pantry on campus, THE DISH, which is open to all students, faculty and staff.
