WHEN: August 13, 2013 at 6pm
WHERE: Cradles to Crayons 155 N Beacon St, Brighton
In the past, I’ve talked about the Boston Chapter of Gay for Good (G4G), which organizes monthly volunteering activities that allows men and women the chance to give back to their local community and to meet people. The August volunteering activity is next Tuesday, August 13th at 6PM in Brighton.
G4G will be sorting clothing and materials to help provide less fortunate children with the basic essentials they need to thrive- at home, at school, and at play. In addition to signing up, Cradles to Crayons asks that all volunteers pre-register before their scheduled volunteer visit using the link below:

Wednesday, July 17th from 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm local do-gooders also known as the Gay for Good Boston Chapter heads to the Greater Boston Food Bank at 70 South Bay Avenue in Boston.
G4G needs volunteers for the Greater Boston Food Bank.
If you have not made plans for tomorrow, won’t you consider joining friends and neighbors who will also be volunteering for a few hours in a comfy climate controlled room?
If you have any questions about the group or the volunteering program feel free to reach out to me or you can read more about it on the Facebook event page here.
With the start of a new year, many make resolutions to “give-back” or to volunteer in the community so I wanted to nudge any of you who may have contemplated this but have yet to find the right opportunity by talking about Gay for Good (G4G).
G4G originally started in Los Angeles in 2008 and now there are chapters in Boston, Chicago, Orange County, Pittsburgh, San Diego and San Francisco. Check out one of these local chapters and get involved. You’ll not only help make your community a better place, but you’ll be able to meet like minded individuals in an organized social setting.
