Next month on Saturday, July 11th GAY FOR GOOD Boston will help the Franklin Park Zoo with their park beautification for the peak of summer tourist season. There is plenty of parking, and this project is accessible by MBTA bus routes #16 or #45. Following the volunteer work everyone is welcome to join at Doyle’s Cafe, 3484 Washington Street, Jamaica Plain for lunch. RSVP before this program fills to capacity.

The Boston chapter of Gay for Good (G4G) is celebrating five years of volunteer work in the Boston community on Sunday, January 25, 2015 at 5PM at the Rattlesnake Bar & Grill in the Back Bay (near Arlington T stop).
RSVP: G4G Boston Anniversary Party
This is a great opportunity for anyone who may be making resolutions for the new year to “pay it forward” or give back to the community. The G4G chapter is also wonderful if you are new to the area and/or are looking to make new friends. At the event you will have a chance to meet other active and new members and learn more about upcoming volunteer projects in 2015.
G4G will have a collection for Rosie’s Place; bring one of any of the following:
- Adult hats, gloves, or scarves
- Toiletries (unopened – travel or full size)
- Canned goods (tuna, peanut butter, beans)
- Coffee mugs
Complimentary appetizers, soft drinks, and coffee will be served from the menu of Poe’s Kitchen at the Rattlesnake. Cash bar for other beverages.
With the holiday spirit of giving now in full swing I’m hoping that some of you will step forward to volunteer and help The Boston chapter of Gay for Good assemble the Toys for Joys, Inc. – T4J signature wagons in advance of their party.
