Community Volunteerism

Hello Friends,

East Boston has been a longtime transient neighborhood of Boston, home to the city’s newest immigrants. Currently, the neighborhood is undergoing a dramatic population shift as several new housing developments go in, and East Boston appears to the rest of the city to be one of the “last affordable places to live.”

But it is the character, culture, warmth, resilience (and good food) that keeps people here. Will you stand with us to unite our neighborhood in the name of community volunteerism? Come to EastieServes on Thursday September 28th any time between 5pm and 7:30pm (Open House style) to learn more about the great work that is being done by several East Boston organizations. They will host tables to recruit volunteers and share about how they make East Boston a better place for all. Several other local leaders, politicians, businesses, and community activists will be there. Will you join us?

Please forward any event inquiries to Sam Albertson from Maverick Landing Community Services at [email protected]

Sincerely yours,

Sam Albertson
