CommUNITY Crew Event - City Year Headquarters
BOSTON – Members of the Celtics CommUNITY Crew spent Friday afternoon at City Year’s headquarters in Boston to assist with their holiday service event. With one in five Boston individuals and families living below the poverty line, City Year teamed with the Salvation Army, the Pine Street Inn, the Red Cross and other non-profits to help provide support.
It proved to be a very fulfilling day as the 30 volunteers worked to create fleece blankets, baby bibs and apple pies to distribute to families in need. Many families will benefit from the items produced during City Year’s event as a total of 231 volunteers worked to create 430 scarves, 183 apple pies, 120, sustainable grocery bags, 63 fleece blankets, 36 baby bibs and 140 stuffed animals.
