Check out these photos our talented MFNH volunteer from Lesley University, Natalie Cohen, took at the 11th Annual Area IV Pride Day this past September! It was the most well-attended pride day ever (thanks in large part to MFNH’s Area IV Coordinator Roscoe Thomas!) and Columbia Park was just bursting with community, music, food, and fun. Make sure to join us next year, we are already looking forward to it!
About 200 volunteers gathered in our backyard last Saturday to build a playground for the kids of the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House and the entire Area IV community. It was a tremendous day.
For seven straight hours, adults from far and wide worked outside, hammering, hauling and pouring concrete.
Indoors, the kids painted panels that spelled out the letters of the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House.
So many people worked for months to make it happen, and they all deserve our thanks. But our kids would still be playing on a tired pair of monkey bars and a couple of raggedy slides if not for the generous support of Boston Properties, Gillette, and- of course- the national non-profit KaBOOM!
Thanks to you, and hundreds of volunteers, we now have what one of our kids described as “a miracle.”
