B-SAFE is happening the week of July 17
 this year and we are excited to be partnering with St. Mary’s, Upham’s Corner, Dorchester, again.

B-SAFE stands for Bishop’s Summer Academic and Fun Enrichment Program, and is run by St. Stephen’s, South End, Youth Programs and volunteers from many parishes in our Diocese. It serves inner-city children and employs many teens as counselors.

Grace provides a week of lunches and volunteers with the kids.

We will be preparing lunches daily, and helping on Friday, July 22 with a field day for all partner sites at Larz Anderson Park! Each day we could use help with lunch preparation at Grace, serving lunch at St. Mary’s, and reading to children.  Please consider taking the day off, or taking part of the day off, to help in this fun, great service initiative. We could really use five to seven helpers each day. 

Please note: we are not at Grace on Friday this year for our field day and book distribution. Our Friday happens to fall on a full B-SAFE field day.

Children and youth are welcome, too! If you cannot get work off but your child wants to participate, Ellen Sheehy (ellenhsheehy@gmail.com) and Lisa Tieszen (latieszen@gmail.com) are happy to help them get to and from home. Contact Lisa if you're interested!
