In furtherance of Rotary's initiative to partner with Scouting (Boys & Girls), we have the opportunity to help Colin Murphy, an Eagle Scout Candidate from Troop 702.  Colin's Eagle Scout Service Project is a blanket and towel drive for Y2Y, a homeless shelter in Harvard Square for young adults.  Y2Y Harvard Square, a young adult overnight shelter, employs a model to provide a safe and affirming environment for young adults experiencing homelessness.  Y2Y guests have opportunities to collaborate with service providers, other youth experiencing homelessness, and volunteers to create sustainable pathways out of homelessness and develop skills for long-term success. Y2Y provides opportunities for both guests and volunteers to become the next generation’s leading advocates for youth-driven solutions to homelessness.
Y2Y's most pressing needs are new or gently used blankets and towels.  This drive will run through April 28.  Any donations may be dropped with Tim Kelley or contact Colin for details or drop locations.
