October 19th, Wednesday, 5-8pm, at Community Servings in Roxbury. We brought a group of four excited BE folks to prepare and package meals that will be delivered to individuals and families in the Boston area living with AIDS and other acute life-threatening illnesses.

We had a great time and look forward to working at Community Servings in the future!

BE Food Drive, Nov. 1st - Nov. 15th, 2005

Our goal was 1 can/item per person in the BE Division. We met and exceeded our goal with 317 donated items to benefit the Greater Boston Food Bank! This translated to 309 lbs and 237 meals that will be given troughout eastern Massachusetts. Thank you everyone that donated and made this a successful event! I would like to especially thank Maxine Jonas, Hyung-Do Kim, Kristen Nagle, Shan Wu and Amy Nichols for all of their donations and extra help!


Didn't get a chance to donate? You can still make an online donation! Please visit the following website for more information: http://www.gbfb.org/index.cfm?ver=f
