Welcome to the 90K...It's All About Time Blog!

To celebrate the 90th Anniversary of Emmanuel College, we asked you to take time to make a difference by raising 90,000 alumni volunteer hours during our anniversary year...and you have!

Over the past several months, I have so enjoyed hearing what you are doing to contribute to 90K. Now, with the launch of the 90K blog, you can share your experiences and ideas with everyone in the Emmanuel community. Please let us know what you are doing to make a difference.

With best wishes,

90K Volunteer Activity at Room to Grow on April 25th

This just in from Carolyn Francisco and Katie Player...

We have booked our 90K volunteer event for Saturday, April 25 at Room To Grow http://www.roomtogrow.org/ at 142 Berkeley Street, Boston.

"Room to Grow's innovative program provides parents raising babies in poverty with one-on-one parenting support and essential baby items throughout their children's critical first three years of life. Parents visit Room to Grow every three months, starting at the mother's third trimester of pregnancy and then throughout the baby's first three years of life. At each visit, our clinicians monitor the baby's developmental progress and help parents navigate the challenges and celebrate the joys of parenting. This includes helping parents understand their child's developmental stages, offering strategies to recognize and respond to their child's many needs, and providing resources and support to help cope with raising a child in typically stressful circumstances. At every visit parents also receive age-appropriate material necessities, allowing them to provide fully for their baby in an immediate and meaningful way."

Much like our Fall activity at Cradles to Crayons, volunteers will sort, organize and prepare an inventory of infant and toddler clothing, toys, books and equipment. We will host two shifts: the first from 10 - 12 and the second from 1 - 3. Space is limited. There will be an email blast shortly telling you how to sign up.

Hey guys, I'm looking forward to giving my time to this organization. What else am I going to do on a Saturday morning in April - but help young families? Works for me!
