On Tuesday, February 5, 38 students from St. Sebastian's School and Ursuline Academy worked together to assemble more than 450 "Blessing Bags" filled with toiletries for Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Since 1985, BHCHP's mission is to provide or assure access to the highest quality health care for all homeless individuals and families in the greater Boston area. Maxwell Surprenant '22, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Catching Joy, introduced the event and emphasized how the "Blessing Bags" help keep people healthy as well as give dignity and hope. Madeline Burns, BHCHP Foundation Relations Associate, spoke to the students about the organization and the impact of the "Blessing Bags."
Thank you to everyone who participated and donated toiletries to help people in need!
