Build A Bed:  A Bed for Every Child

Saturday, November 2, 2019 – 8:30 am to 2:00 pm – Mary Norton Hall

In partnership with the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless, we will join together to build 20 twin beds and provide for complete bedding (mattress, box spring, and sheets/blankets and pillows) for children living in poverty in Boston.  80 volunteers from our congregation and our families will come together for a community day of service in November in Mary Norton Hall.  This is an ideal program for children (as young as 5 years old) and adults.  Individuals and families and friends of Old South are invited to participate.

The schedule for the day is as follows:

  • 8:30 AM Continental Breakfast
  • 9:00 AM Community Forum: Children, Poverty, Impact and Social Policy
  • 10:00 AM The Build begins!
  • 11:30 AM Sanding one of the most important part of building a bed!

  • 12:45 PM Group photo and closing remarks.
