"Our goal is to help students improve their academic skills, especially reading, writing and math. We hope to inspire these students to believe in themselves and perhaps go on to higher education."

WHEN: Wednesday, November 7, 5:30-8:30 pm
WHERE: Braza Grille, 672 Waverly St., Framingham
WHY: To help us raise $80,000 for Herb's 80th!
PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A DONATION OF ANY AMOUNT IN HONOR OF HERB'S BIRTHDAY!
Children went on some great field trips during the summer, to Mass Audubon's Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary in Natick, and Eastleigh Farm in Framingham.
Children at Pusan planted tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, basil, and lettuce- and got to snack on it all summer long!
In partnership with KaBOOM!, the CarMax Foundation donated a playground to the Interfaith Terrace community (Cochituate Homes Cooperative), through Hoops and Homework.
Volunteers came from everywhere: CarMax, Interfaith Terrace residents, Hoops and Homework board members, community leaders, artists and landscapers, local businesses and corporations, labor unions, and YOU- a true community event. People donated time, money, transportation services, supplies- even food to keep the volunteers fueled with energy.
In addition to the wonderful playground equipment, volunteers constructed shade shelters, numerous picnic tables and benches, a "little library" and cornhole sets. Artists and volunteers painted incredible murals.
We can't thank you enough- and the kids and families in the neighborhood love it!
