Past Events

7th annual Charles River Clean Up: Saturday, April 29th, 9:30am-12pm.

Our group was assigned to the MIT side of the Charles, between the Mass Ave Bridge and the Longfellow. We had a lot of fun making the Charles cleaner and found some interesting trash!

Thank you to those that volunteered: Melissa Kemp, Amy Nichols, Maxine Jonas, Helene Karcher, and Ben Cosgrove (and Elissa). Here are some photos!

Bread and Jams Sunday Meal, 1/22/06. We helped prep food at St. James Church that was served to those in need in the Cambridge community. Thanks to the 14 BE members that came! It was very rewarding to meet some of their clients and see the difference that Bread and Jams makes!

BE Food Drive, Nov. 1st - Nov. 15th, 2005

Our goal was 1 can/item per person in the BE Division. We met and exceeded our goal with 317 donated items to benefit the Greater Boston Food Bank! This translated to 309 lbs and 237 meals that will be given troughout eastern Massachusetts. Thank you everyone that donated and made this a successful event! I would like to especially thank Maxine Jonas, Hyung-Do Kim, Kristen Nagle, Shan Wu and Amy Nichols for all of their donations and extra help!

Didn't get a chance to donate? You can still make an online donation! Please visit the following website for more information:

October 19th, Wednesday, 5-8pm, at Community Servings in Roxbury. We brought a group of four excited BE folks to prepare and package meals that will be delivered to individuals and families in the Boston area living with AIDS and other acute life-threatening illnesses.

We had a great time and look forward to working at Community Servings in the future!
