St. Sebastian's Volunteers at Pine Street Inn for 8th Annual Chop-A-Thon

This past Sunday, January 27, St. Sebastian's fathers and sons traveled to Boston for the 8th annual Chop-A-Thon at the Pine Street Inn, the largest resource for the homeless in New England.

The Arrows donated close to 1,500 pounds of produce and proceeded to slice, dice, and chop the food for later use. The donations of carrots, onions, peppers, potatoes, and assorted fruits will be used by the shelter, which prepares close to 2,700 meals a day! The room buzzed with activity, as the fathers and sons worked hard. Everyone served selflessly, but those volunteers who chopped onions in a separate room deserve extra praise.

The donations and efforts made by the St. Sebastian's Community provided a good amount of produce for the Pine Street Inn to use over the coming days. Thanks to all who participated in the 8th annual Chop-A-Thon, with special gratitude to our Director of Service Programs John Eaton and Men's Association President Sam Hodgson P'12,'20 for organizing the event.
