We will be at the Roslindale Farmers Market on Saturday, August 6 & 27, 2022, 9:00 am – 1:30 pm to share information about our efforts to support Rosie’s Place, the Roslindale Food Pantry and other local food pantries, and to send children who need our support to summer camp programs. If you are in the neighborhood, stop by to say hello!
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
Thank you to everyone who bought raffle tickets for our Harvest “Un-Brunch” Raffle Drawing. We are happy to report that the raffle brought in more than $4,000 to support our work!
Congratulations to all the winners, and especially to our grand prize winner, Erin Haight, who will be receiving a yummy brunch for four prepared by professional chef, Courtney Beerman.
We miss gathering with all of you in person again this year, but we are hopeful that finally next fall we will be able to share brunch together again. Have a happy holiday season and may you and yours be safe and well.
Thank you for all you do to make our community, our city, our world a better place.
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.
