Bass Joins CommUNITY Crew at Rosie's Place
BOSTON - The Celtics CommUNITY Crew, in partnership with TD Bank, and Celtics forward Brandon Bass kicked off the holiday season volunteering at Rosie’s Place on Thursday.
Rosie’s Place, a sanctuary for poor and homeless women, serves meals daily to more than 200 guests in addition to providing short-term housing, GED courses and health and wellness services.
Fifteen CommUNITY Crew volunteers arrived Thursday morning to prepare and serve lunch to the 162 women who arrived during that shift.
Following lunch, a crew of 20 new volunteers, including Bass, came to serve dinner to guests. Bass also spent time meeting each guest, signing a photo and taking a picture with them.
“Rosie’s Place is doing great work day-in and day-out to help Boston’s homeless women and children,” said the forward. “I’m glad the CommUNITY Crew assisted today and it was nice meeting every guest.”
