B-SAFE 2012 – Join us!

posted May 24, 2012, 5:41 AM by Amelia Fannin
Make a difference this summer! Grace Church is now in its 6th year as a partner in the Bishop’s Summer Academic & Fun Enrichment (B-SAFE), program, a 5-week “camp-like” experience through which inner-city Boston kids and teens participate in academics, sports and enrichment activities, including a weekly field trip. The program could not run without the support of parishes like ours, who prepare and serve lunches and snacks, read with children, and plan and participate in a full day Friday field trip. This year we are excited to return to the St. Mary’s Episcopal church site in Dorchester from July 16- 20th.
 
There are ample opportunities for Grace church parishioners (and friends) of ALL ages to participate.  From Monday – Thursday, we will need 5-6 volunteers per day to help prepare lunches at Grace, and/or  deliver, serve and clear lunches at St. Mary’s.  We can also use help with shopping for food and supplies. On Friday, July 20th, we will accompany kids and counselors to Drumlin Farm in the morning, followed by a barbeque and field day back at Grace.   We especially would love to have teens join us that day to help prepare for lunch, and/or plan and help with activities (games, crafts, etc.) for the kids in the afternoon.  
 
There is a general sign up sheet in the Parish Hall, with more specific information to follow.   Please contact either of us if you have any questions.
