3rd Annual School Supply Drive

Brothers and Sisters,

Last month, we held our 3rd Annual Mid-Year School Supply Drive to provide Boston teachers and families with the school supplies that children need to finish the school year strong.

Together, alongside community-focused leaders and organizations, we showed up in solidarity to donate over $10,000 in supplies to ensure that our students receive the support they need year-round.
Thank you again to everyone who donated, volunteered, and showed up to support our community. The drive’s great success is all thanks to the commitment, generosity, and hard work of our members and allies.
