April showers didn’t stop our volunteers! LBFE would like to thank our volunteers who led social and educational activities in elder buildings, delivered fresh produce and groceries, and visited folks. You made April another great month for elders across the city! Here are a few folks we would like to recognize:
The University Chorale Group of Boston College performed songs from their spring chorale concert for over 50 residents at one of our Brighton City Sites.
Boston College PULSE students ended their year of service with a month of celebrations, concerts, and board games. (Pictured above: Igor Shcherbakovskiy and fellow volunteers and residents at the Patricia White City Site.)
GAY FOR GOOD delivered a week’s worth of fresh produce and groceries to 88 elders in Jamaica Plain and the South End.
8 volunteers visited and delivered flowers to 12 elders in 9 neighborhoods with Friendship & Flowers
NORTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY’s Center for Community Service students led 25 activities in elder buildings in 6 neighborhoods.
Elle Marrone from Artifacts Everyday led a free community craft workshop in Lower Mills, Dorchester. Each participant learned techniques of polymer clay jewelry making and left the workshop with their own handmade piece.
Want to get involved with your group or just by yourself? It’s easy! Come to an orientation on the second Saturday of each month- and then if you have time, visit and deliver flowers to an elder. Questions? Send a note to Airlie Parham at email@example.com.
