We are a week away from the CWS Double Impact virtual event, hosted by WCVB Channel 5’s Erika Tarantal. We are honored to have Boston’s own Mayor Marty Walsh and President and CEO of The New England Council, Jim Brett participating in this special event.
Taking place on October 29th at 6pm ET, the funds raised at this event will directly benefit our Double Impact Initiative, which aims to increase the number of youth who have a safe place to live and enough food to eat.
In addition to the Eaton Memorial Fund, we are excited to announce more major sponsors of the event: Marble Harbor Investment Counsel and Bullhorn Inc. Please click here or at the bottom of this page to register for this event – there are a number of exciting sponsorship opportunities that will help us reach our goal.
Throughout its 143-year history, Community Work Services has addressed the roots of poverty through employment, education, and housing improvements. Today, CWS is bringing that same vision to bear on the crisis of homelessness and food insecurity through our new initiative: Double Impact.
This initiative was developed in conjunction with Breaktime which is a youth-led nonprofit and social enterprise. Double Impact has a twofold purpose – to help homeless young adults acquire job skills and economic stability, and to create meals for first responders and food-insecure participants in the Boston-area.
The need is acute. Amid a nationwide surge in food insecurity, one in seven residents and one in five children in Massachusetts will experience food insecurity, the second highest rate in the nation among children.
