Giving Project Donations will be open for two more weeks (until June 14), so please be generous. We are hoping to raise $2000 this year!
The organizations selected by Oak Hill and Brown Students address a number of issues in our community:
- There is a poverty problem in Newton but we rarely see it. One Can Help assists people who are often ignored because they are in the juvenile court system and can’t afford even a bus pass or a laptop.
- Suicide is among the leading causes of death among 15-44-year olds. Project Semicolon offers help and understanding to those with mental health issues to reduce the stigma attached to those issues.
- Being of different backgrounds or faiths shouldn’t prevent people from seeing their commonalities. Kids 4 Peace trains kids from diverse backgrounds to be interfaith peace leaders.
- A Newton family founded Cape Crafts 4 Kids to expose underserved kids to art by providing art supplies and programs at a large food pantry on Cape Cod. They hope to expand to Boston food pantries this year but need funding to make it happen.
