WRFORP has landed! Our 2022 “Shoot for the Moon” Campaign was a success

With our “Shoot for the Moon” Campaign last year, we set a challenging goal to raise $40,000 to support local organizations that serve food insecure individuals and families, and programs that provide opportunities for children to participate in activities that bolster their wellbeing.

Together we met that challenge!

Thank you for your assistance throughout 2022 and for an especially generous December. Thanks, too, to our benevolent corporate sponsors:
Brookline Bank
Enbridge, Inc.
Roche Bros.
Rockland Trust
Wegmans Food Markets

West Roxbury Friends of Rosie’s Place (WRFORP) board members wish all our friends a very happy and healthy New Year, and we thank you for your warmhearted support in 2022.

Wishing you a 2023 filled with love and hope!

We loved getting Distracted…

West Roxbury Friends of Rosies Place wants to give a big thank you to our many long-time and new supporters who joined us on Monday evening at Distraction Brewing Co. for a fun time and a very successful fundraiser for Rosie’s Place and the Roslindale Food Pantry.  

Special thanks to Distraction for hosting the event. This was our first time teaming up with Distraction, and the success of the evening was due in large part to their involvement.

After quenching their thirst with a brew, hungry supporters satisfied their appetite with dinner from Wanderlust Food Truck. A delicious Monday evening combination! 

The multi-generational crowd, from babies to octogenarians, added to the festive atmosphere. 

Thanks to everyone for their generosity and participation in the fundraiser’s raffle. 

Lucky winners took home gift cards donated by local businesses—Green T Coffee Shop, Sophia’s Grotto, The Square Root, Kissed, and Birch St. House & Garden—to name just a few.

Thanks to your participation, we are able to help our neighbors struggling with food insecurity. 

We did it! Our $40K for 40 Years campaign brought in over $45,000 in 2021

Not many things went better than expected in 2021, but thanks to your generosity, we’re happy to share with you that West Roxbury Friends of Rosie’s Place’s $40K for 40 Years Anniversary Campaign beat all expectations!

We set a challenging goal to raise $40,000 to help local organizations that serve food insecure individuals and families. With your help, we raised over $45,000 and gave it all away!

At a time when everything seems hard, it’s comforting to know that we’re part of a caring community that made things better for others. Thank you for all you do to make our community, our city, our world a better place.

Wishing you the very best in 2022,

WRFORP Board Members
