Our first First Fridays Monthly Reource Fair was a great success! We served 82 families from our community and we hope next month we will be able to serve even more! This month we gave away groceries (apples, pineapple, watermelon, pork loin, potatoes, and lettuce!) from the Red Cross. We also had Rosie's Place doing advocacy for families--they help with utility bills, transportation, education and job searches and more. Our partners at Boston Saves launched their pilot financial check-up program and gave $25 gift cards to the families that participated this month. We also had sign-ups for families to schedule time to visits Catie's Closet. Next month we hope to have all that and MORE! Look out for updates about which partners will be joining us next month!
Last year, our 4th grade students had the opportunity to do some hands-on learning abroad the historic Roseway, a 100-year-old tall ship that offers outdoor educational experiences to students in the Boston area. Check out what our 4th graders learned!
