the deal of a lifetime [volunteer opportunity]

So budgets are tight and pennies are gettin' pinched, but it doesn't mean you have to put giving on hold... Listen up, kiddos, for a FREE (that's right, F-R-E-E) way to help some families out.

On Saturday, June 14th, OYFP and Christopher's Haven are hosting a Volunteer Work Day from 11AM-4PM. Christopher's Haven provides temporary housing for families who are here in Boston because their children are receiving cancer treatment at Mass General Hospital.

The organization has just acquired a new apartment to open up to another family, but they need help setting it up. Tasks include opening boxes, setting up the new kitchen, assembling IKEA furniture, and maybe even walking around the block to pick up menus from nearby restaurants and shops.

And did I mention that a PIZZA lunch will be provided? How can you beat that? Good times with OYFPers (who have been known to bust out and let loose on several occasions!) AND pizza AND a chance to create a warm, welcoming home for a family in need of some care ALL AT NO COST TO YOU.

So whatcha' waitin' for?! Sign up today by contacting Hannah Kim at hannah.kim@oyfp.org
