Join us at Distraction Brewing Co. at 2 Belgrade Avenue in Roslindale on Monday, October 3rd, for beer, raffles, food, and fun to support Rosie’s Place and the Roslindale Food Pantry! $10 at the door.
Thank you to everyone who donated to WRFORP’s April-May campership fundraiser. We are happy to report that the fundraiser brought in more than $5000 to provide a summer camp respite for local Boston children who are experiencing stressful circumstances.
We can’t think of a better way to help children who have been dealing with COVID and other serious issues this year than by providing them with the opportunity to be in a playful environment as part of a nurturing camp program. We’re glad you agree!
Your support acknowledges the important work done by camp programs like Siblings Connections Camp, Children of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse (COASA), Parkway Community YMCA Camp Programs, and Sunset Point Camp.
Thank you for all you do to support children in our community.
Our thanks to everyone who turned out for our Thank You Block Party on Saturday, September 18, 2021. A lovely time was had by all!
We were so happy to have the opportunity to reconnect in person with longtime and new supporters on Park Street where it all started 40 years ago.
Michael Oliver, Director of Fundraising for Rosie’s Place, came with his pup, Frodo, and shared how they are helping women and hungry families through the challenges of COVID.
And Ruthzee Louijeune, candidate for Boston City Council At-Large, closed out the celebration with us.
Again, THANK YOU for all you have done to support the Boston women, children, and families we serve together.
We are looking forward to hosting another Virtual Harvest Brunch in November, so be on the lookout for messages from us about great raffle prizes and how to get a ticket.
West Roxbury Friends of Rosie’s Place is delighted to share our new logo with you, our loyal supporters. As you know, this year, WRFORP celebrates its 40th Anniversary. We have a proud history of neighbors helping neighbors that dates back to 1981. Thanks to you, we have thrived and expanded our ability to help. We wanted a logo that visually represents the uplifting results of our three-fold mission to assist Rosie’s Place, the Roslindale Food Pantry, and to provide summer camperships to children experiencing poverty and homelessness.
We believe our new Logo achieves the symbolism and positive spirit we hoped to convey. We are thankful to graphic designer and long-time supporter, Neva Corbo-Hudak, for donating her time and talent to make this possible.
