Donation

Michelle Wu for Mayor

Back in 2018, I saw Boston City Councilor Michelle Wu speak at a Green Energy Consumers Alliance event. It was a moving and dynamic speech. Last summer, she announced her plan for a Boston Green New Deal and Just Recovery. Today, I made a donation to Michelle Wu’s campaign for Mayor.

Community Action Agency of Somerville

Today, I met with the director of organizing for the Community Action Agency of Somerville to see how I could help, either individually or as part of the Climate Coalition of Somerville. I also made a donation.

Project Soup and Community Fridge

Today, I donated several hundred grocery bags to Project Soup, the food pantry run by the Somerville Homeless Coalition, and to Somerville’s Community Fridge. Really, I was redirecting the bags, because they were all donated to the Somerville Stands Together Food Drive I volunteered at earlier this month.

Environmental League of Massachusetts

Today, I made a donation to the Environmental League of Massachusetts. We missed out on Earth Night this year, but still want to support them.

More Than Words

Today, I made a donation of books to More Than Words, which is so much more a used book store. More Than Words works with youth in the foster care system, court involved, homeless, or out of school to get them involved with different aspects of running a business. Great organization.

Food for Free

Today, I made a donation to Food for Free, an awesome organization that “rescues” food from grocery stores and restaurants, and distributes the food to those in need.

Better Future Project

Today, I made a donation to the Better Future Project, the parent organization for 350 Mass and Communities Responding to Extreme Weather.

Environmental League of Massachusetts

Today, I made a donation to the Environmental League of Massachusetts. Check out the conversations they hosted around their 2020 Commonwealth Environmental Leadership Awards on Youtube.

Somerville Museum

Today, I renewed my membership to the Somerville Museum. It’s a small but important community resource that stays particularly connected to the community through its community curator program.

City Councilor contribution

Today, I made a donation to a City Councilor’s re-election campaign for 2021. The election is along ways off, but that’s how the election cycle works around here.
