Painting the interior at Interfaith
Building new raised garden beds at Pusan

We have a brand new look!

  Thank you, Bose Volunteers! On Friday, May 11, volunteers from Bose Corporation in Framingham fanned out all over the city to  volunteer at different community organizations. We were so lucky to have approximately 25 volunteers work at our two centers, painting and doing small carpentry jobs. The interiors at Pusan and Interfaith were both painted. At Interfaith, lines were put down on the basketball court, and hopscotch and four-square areas were created. At Pusan, the existing raised garden bed was repaired and a new one built. We are so grateful for Bose's help, and now we look great, too!

Music To Our Ears

Six children from Pusan who have been studying violin all year performed at the Framingham Cultural Council's 2018 Awards Reception on April 30, at the Framingham Public Library. The students performed three songs: "Hot Cross Buns", "Mary Had A Little Lamb", and "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star." Their teacher was Zachary Surapine, from the Performing Arts Center of MetroWest, and violins were donated courtesy of Centre Music House.  Tommy's Taxi generously provided transportation to and from the event. We are so proud of these young musicians!

Here's the group performing "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star."

Marathon Runners Finish The Job!

Hats off to the Team Hoops and Homework Boston Marathon runners! On the rainiest of rainy days,  all eight members of Team Hoops and Homework persevered and completed the race, raising over  $50,000 for our organization in the process. Lots of thanks go to our runners:  Jeff Beling, Megan Bubello, Bree Cunningham, Joe Kynoch, Diana Linn, Mark Nickerson, Priscilla Sousa, and Lesley White Harvey. We continue to be in awe of their amazing accomplishment!

  Several runners visited Pusan and Interfaith the week after the Marathon. The children enjoyed asking lots and lots of questions, and they even got to try on Marathon medals!
