Dear East End House Friends,
Over the past few days, East End House has been working with a core group of families impacted by the devastating fire last weekend in East Cambridge. In addition to losing their homes, many of these families lost all of their belongings-vehicles, driver's licenses, credit cards, medications, clothing, and other essential items. We have been working to connect these families to appropriate support services and City of Cambridge relief efforts, as well as to provide them with food, toiletry items, infant supplies, winter coats, mittens, shoes, clothing, transportation, gift cards, and other basic necessities.
Recovering from the devastating effects of the fire and the resulting dislocation-both physical and emotional-will be a long journey for these families. East End House is committed to supporting them on this journey as they regain stability and find housing.
Join East End House on Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and celebrate generosity worldwide. Giving Tuesday is a great way to give back in a way that is meaningful to you while kicking off the holiday gift-giving season. For ways you can give back, check out the flyer below.
Do you have a passion for STEM? Would you like to have positive, meaningful impact on Cambridge middle school youth? East End House is now recruiting professionals, graduate students, and undergrads with experience in biotechnology, genetics, and/or biology to coach and mentor Cambridge middle school youth and enhance their STEM learning as part of the GeniConnect curriculum. GeniConnect is a National Science Foundation-funded project for afterschool students involving game-based learning. Students will navigate through Geniverse, a web-based game environment that supports students' learning of genetics. To learn more about GeniConnect and/or a range of related volunteer opportunities, check out the flyers below or reach out to Giovanna at 617-876-4444 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
