The New Lawyers Public Service Committee’s annual Cradles to Crayons volunteer event is always popular, but this year it filled up in record time. Fifteen attorneys spent last Saturday processing and packaging donations that will be distributed to disadvantaged children across the state through Cradles to Crayons.  In case you’re not familiar with the organization, Cradles to Crayons provide homeless or low-income children with the essential items they need to thrive at home, at school, and at play.

So what’s next for the New Lawyers Public Service Committee? Attorneys are heading to the Pine Street Inn on Saturday, February 20th to help prepare meals for the homeless at the Pine Street Inn and to learn about the problem of homelessness in Boston. This even also filled up quickly (which goes to show how dedicated our members are to volunteering in the community). However, keep an eye on the calendar for more weekend volunteer opportunities later this spring!
