The Brookline Community Foundation (BCF) awarded more than $235,000 in grants to 14 organizations through its 2017 Fall Community Grant Cycle. “We received $570,000 in compelling requests, a record number this grant round. These grants will support high quality programs and organizations serving the diverse needs of Brookline residents, and are strongly aligned with BCF’s strategic focus on reducing and eliminating the impacts of poverty, improving access to out-of-school time programs, and meeting the health and wellness needs of youth and community members,” said Gioia Perugini, BCF Board Member and Chair of the Program and Grants Committee. A full description of the fall grants can be found on BCF’s website at https://brooklinecommunity.org/sites/default/files/2017%20BCF%20Fall%20Grants%20.pdf

NEW FAMILY WELCOME POINT PERSON:
Join Lawrence's New Family Welcome by being a first point of contact to families new to Lawrence. The welcome team is in search of 1 or 2 more members to help with school tours, showing new families around the school and answering any questions they may have. Tours currently occur one Tuesday per month at 8:15 (after drop-off) and one Thursday at 1:40 (before pick-up), so anyone who can commit to two or three of those per semester would be a big help! The welcome team would appreciate any help, but is seeking a middle school parent/caregiver, in particular, to add to the range of experience available to new families. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
