Just-A-Start YouthBuild participated in September 11th Remembrance by participating in two events.
In the morning, staff and students started the day at the Cambridge Fire Department Headquarters. Along with the firefighters, we had a moment of silence to honor the victims and the Chief of Police lead the entire group in Mychal's prayer.
Following this ceremony, the group headed over to the Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund for their annual 9/11 Service Project to Support Troops and Families. They were in need of baby wipes, so JAS donated two cases from BJs. While there, the group assembled 500 care packages for soldiers overseas and another 500 for veterans in need, served by the New England Center for Homeless Veterans. We hope that our assistance with these efforts helped make life a little better for others in need while honoring the memories of the victims of that fateful day.
