“With open hearts and open hands, we gave what we could, and a little became a lot. 
-From Give A Little by Wendy Smith

Our student groups continue their efforts that prove to us that small things add up and truly make a difference. Here is how you can help.

The Human Rights Club is collecting items to help female burn victims in Afghanistan. The Herat Supply Drive begins on Jan. 27, and will run throughFeb. 11. They are collecting women’s clothing, gauze and sterile bandages, Advil, Aleve, and paper tape. Contact faculty advisors Erin Twohig and Jamileh Jemison for more information.

The Romania Trip is having a baby shower! They are hoping to fill their suitcases with items for abandoned infants and foster children who they will be visiting in March. Donations will be accepted Feb. 14 –March 4. They mare looking for Infant/Children’s Tylenol, Surgical gloves, 3M Surgical Tape, Similac Powder Baby Formula, Desitin diaper crème, baby shampoo, Dove soap, baby lotion, powder, and wipes. They are also in need of new or gently used baby clothes (onesies, sizes 6-12 months), hats and mittens (infant to 12 years) and children’s sneakers (all sizes). Once you've donated, be sure to enter your child's name into the raffle box (located next to the crib) for a chance to win one of two prizes: a pair of tickets to see DISPATCH in concert OR a suite of gifts cards to shops and restaurants in Dedham ($100 value). Please contact trip leader Lauren Bergeron for more information.

Many thanks to our MLK blanket makers. Our first delivery to Pine Street Inn has been made. The blankets will be distributed by their outreach van to Boston-area homeless men and women.

Thank you for your support and to all in the Nobles Community who continue to “make ripples” and improve the lifes of others.
