    Hey there

    My husband and I moved to Southie a month ago. We are looking for opportunities to volunteer and engage locally. Is there a resource you can think of that list local non profits or those looking for volunteers? May I suggest adding to you head lines of “eat” “drink” “do” “wear” one that s says “volunteer” or engage”?
