All of us experience times in our lives when we could use some extra support. On Thursday evening, April 27, join hands with women across the community for a night of volunteering fun at Hand in Hand 2017. Together we’ll make beautiful and useful “Hand in Hand” baskets for women coping with mental health challenges or family hardship. One basket has the ability to provide a moment of joy, decrease feelings of isolation, and remind a woman she is not alone. Learn more and register at http://www.brooklinecenter.org/womensevents or contact Maggie Ginn at (617) 277-8107 / email@example.com Sponsored by Women at the Center, a program of the Brookline Center for Community Mental Health.
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.
