Spring is in the air, and the Boston 1st Service Platoon is excited to be working with Hildebrand Self-Help Center for Phase 2 of our outdoor project at two family-congregate shelters in Cambridge. For Veterans Day 2018, we started the process by cleaning and clearing the backyard space, removing unsafe exposed wire-meshing, and rebuilding a formerly damaged play area.

For our project in May, we will take it to the next level and turn this shared backyard space into a fun play area and oasis for children and families residing at these two homeless shelters. We will be repairing and painting the back fence, building and installing a new play set, building new picnic tables, and planting lots of flowers.

We will have a limited number of activities for younger kids to help with, and otherwise our projects will be for ages 12+.

***Because we are going to be volunteering at family homeless shelters, we want to be respectful to their privacy. We will not be posting the official address online. This will only be sent out to those who've registered to volunteer. Both shelters are located within walking distance of Central Square Red Line T-Station in Cambridge.

What To Wear :

Your TMC shirt, closed-toe shoes, and clothes you don't mind getting dirty.

Parking :

We are working to secure a small parking lot for volunteers, and will share more information to registered participants. Our project site is also very close to Central Square on the Red Line if you're taking the T.
