What is happening at Crosby
Crosby Employees Take Time To Give Back
In September, several Crosby employees donated their time to the volunteer program Community Servings, a non-profit organization located in Jamaica Plain. Community Servings provides healthy and nutritious meals to individuals and families residing in the greater Boston area living with critical and chronic illnesses. The goal of the program is to help those in need maintain their independence by delivering meals for free.
Crosby volunteers learned about the organization and safe food handling and then prepared meals in an assembly-line fashion, with each person at their own station. Strict cleanliness precautions were followed, as many Community Servings recipients have compromised immune systems. Some volunteers assisted by adding a protein, starch or vegetable dish to meal containers while others sealed packages that would be frozen and delivered at a future time.
There are many ways to contribute to Community Servings, including meal preparation, packaging and/or delivery and food or monetary donations. Beginning in October, Community Servings will have its 14th annual "Pie in the Sky" pie sale. Pies will be sold for $25; proceeds from the sale of one pie will help feed an individual for one week. To learn more about the Pie in the Sky pie sale, you may visit pieinthesky.org or visit the Community Servings website about how you can help.
Everyone at Crosby who volunteered had a fantastic time working with Community Servings. We are excited about future volunteer opportunities with Community Servings and other local organizations.
