Dear UIANE friends,
Would you like to help those less fortunate than us in Boston? Are you interested in an enjoyable evening to help children in a way that will truly bring a smile to a child's face? Please join us on Tuesday May 22, 2018 at Cradles to Crayons. Please read about Cradles to Crayons here: https://www. cradlestocrayons.org/boston/ what-we-do/
The UIANE will host a special evening at Cradles to Crayons, a wonderful organization that helps children and families. Everyone is welcome to join us! Please consider volunteering a couple of hours to join us in this fun event where we will as a community give back to those less fortunate here in Massachusetts.
Cradles to Crayons just asks that each volunteer pre-registers with them, so please use this link to sign up: http://www.cradlestocrayons.or g/boston/group-pre-register/ Registration code : a0RC000000VXnsd
We will be going to the "Giving Factory" where we will be creating Kid packs, bags of essential items donated to children, which will then be distributed throughout the Massachusetts area. It is a fun, easy way to directly help children in a wonderful way. This is not a drive or a collection of money, it is a collection of items children actually need and a night at the facility where we will assemble all the donated items into packages to be distributed to children in need. This is a wonderful opportunity to give to children and help improve their lives. Please consider joining us for a quick two hours of volunteer work, and gain the satisfaction of knowing you helped local children.
This is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community around us, and be a positive force in the world. Everyone is welcome, including children (over the age of 5) so this a a great opportunity for the whole family and a fabulous chance to teach your children about charity work and volunteering. We hope you will consider joining us.
