Friday, January 27, 2012, 11am-4pm, Meet at W20-Mezz Lounge.
First, we'll have a delicious Indian lunch at the Mezzanine Lounge (W20). Then, you'll head out into the Cambridge and Boston communities to volunteer with one of three local organizations:
1) The Greater Boston Food Bank, Boston, works to end hunger in eastern Massachusetts. Volunteers will be inspecting, sorting, and repacking donated grocery products to be distributed to hunger relief agencies.
2) The Salvation Army, Harbor Light Center, Boston, is a shelter for individuals struggling with addiction. It offers a residency program, two sober graduate houses, transitional housing assistance for women, a community feeding program and worship services. Volunteers will be painting the Center.
3) People Making a Difference, MIT, is founded by one of MIT’s own, Lori Tsuruda ’89. PMD promotes volunteerism in one-time projects that meet local needs. Volunteers will be at MIT, assembling Lego kits into DNA models that will be used by schools in the Boston area and across the country.
Public transportation fees to/from the service placement will be provided.
