The Sisters of Saint Joseph of Boston Present
“Make a Difference in Allston/Brighton Day”
An evening to honor Allston Brighton volunteers as we present many local organizations in need of more help. Come and mingle. Find out. Sign up. Become a volunteer.
637 Cambridge Street Brighton, MA October 29, 2018 6:15 P.M.-8 P.M. The Sisters of Saint Joseph of Boston are pleased to host the 2018 “Make a Difference in Allston/Brighton” at the Motherhouse in Brighton. This day will serve two distinct purposes: to honor the great work of active volunteers in Allston/Brighton and to recruit new volunteers for the 20 different non-profit organizations that will be represented. Our neighborhood community is always looking for extra helping hands who are willing and able to volunteer time and resources to those in need. Meet and speak with organizations that directly impact our neighborhood through the diverse support they offer to seniors, immigrants, families, women, and children. There will also be a short program to honor the people who have generously donated their time in service of the community.
“Our organizations rely on the generosity of volunteers to provide a variety of services to those in need. The ‘Make a Difference’ event is a great way to get connected with these 20 different organizations and like-minded individuals,” explains Jill Uchiyama, the director of The Literacy Connection. The Literacy Connection is a ministry started by the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Boston with the goal of providing ESOL tutoring to immigrants in Boston and citizenship prep classes and is one of the organizations that will be represented. These organizations all share the common goal of “loving the dear neighbor without distinction” throughout Allston/Brighton.
Doors open at 6:15 PM and refreshments will be provided. For more information about this event please contact Jill Uchiyama at email@example.com or 617-746-2104.
