Give a Day of Service to Boston at EB 2015

10:00 AM–3:00 PM 

Since 2009, ASPET members attending Experimental Biology (EB) have given a day of volunteer service in the local communities  such as New Orleans, Pasadena, Washington DC, and San Diego.

Volunteer activities have ranged from home construction to painting, cleaning, stocking, food preparation, and food service. ASPET's division for behavioral pharmacology is again sponsoring a volunteer opportunity at EB 2015 in Boston.

On Friday, 27 March 2015, we will spend the day at Cradles to Crayons helping the children of Boston. Volunteers will also be able to prepare materials prior to the volunteer day such as personalized well-wisher notes that are placed in backpacks given to children at the start of the school year.

Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12 living in homeless or low-income situations with the essential items they need to thrive at home, at school, and at play.

If you want to volunteer, please contact Charles P. France at your earliest convenience.

Tel: 210 567 6969
Fax: 210 567 0104 

Space is limited and further details will be provided to those who volunteer.
