Make a Difference Day
In celebration of Make a Difference Day, Boston Cares corporate and individual volunteers join together to build beds for local children in need.  Why beds? There are more than 1500 greater Boston children that do not have a bed of their own.  Children without beds can have lowered self-esteem, ability to learn, and a reduced likelihood of graduating from high school.

Boston Cares has worked with skilled furniture makers to develop a simple bed design and assembly process that allows volunteers with minimal training or experience to produce beds that are attractive, sturdy, and easy to assemble. Beds are distributed through agency partners to families with children transitioning out of homelessness and foster care.
