Protest Against Evictions

Today, I joined a Somerville Protest Against Evictions & Foreclosures, organized by CAAS and others. The Climate Coalition of Somerville cosponsored the event.

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.

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.

Somerville Stands Together food drive

Today, I helped out with a food drive run by Somerville Stands Together. I brought over about 400 grocery bags plus several cases of food. I was going to volunteer, as well, but there were plenty of others helping out.

Food drive bag pickup

I’m helping out with an upcoming food drive run by the labor-centric Somerville Stands Together. Today, I picked up donations of grocery bags from about 15 households in Somerville. I also sanitized and organized all the donations to make them easier to transport.

Somerville Community Corporation

Today, I made a donation to the Somerville Community Corporation, which is our local community development corporation. I took advantage of a favorable state program called the community investment tax credit.

Community Food Bank of New Jersey

Thanksgiving weekend calls for overeating, but there are so many families struggling with food insecurity, even more so because of the coronavirus pandemic. Today, I made a donation to the Community Foodbank of New Jersey.

Los Angeles Regional Food Bank
