Update: Metro Boston Lodge and the Somerville Homeless Coalition

As many of you know, the Metro Boston Lodge has enjoyed a long partnership with the Somerville Homeless Coalition (SHC) to provide badly needed supplies for the most vulnerable members of our neighborhoods–homeless families and children. We dropped off winter clothing at the SHC office in Davis Square earlier this week. That was our final delivery for the calendar year as they can no longer accept clothing items. They do, however, have a continued need for non-perishable food and for personal hygiene items (such as toothpaste, deodorant, baby wipes, etc.).

If you would like to help, you can drop off donations during one of our game events. Please contact our organizers (metro-boston-venture-officers@googlegroups.com) at least a couple of days before the game, and one of our volunteers will coordinate receipt/delivery of the donation with you. For a list of SHC needs, please reference their in-kind donations page.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all for being good stewards of the communities in which we live, especially during the holidays.
