My life has greatly been enhanced by volunteering in many places through Boston Cares : o ). Whether i's feeding the homeless, tutoring students for their upcoming GED, helping at a food pantry./soup kitchen, helping at a harvest festival in the next town that I live in, ESL, and so much more, Boston Cares has been patient, understanding, and so helpful in assisting me to find the best fit for me re: volunteer activities. I've graduated to being a volunteer to the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway volunteer. Am recovering from surgery, and will be back volunteering c Boston Cares after 12 February 2013. A rich, and rewarding experience. I highly recommend this organization : o )
