Humanists Against Homelessness: Powderhouse Square Cleanup
The Tufts Humanist Chaplaincy takes responsibility for fighting homelessness in our shared community by making cleaner streets, supporting affordable housing, and improving food access. Being a part of the Tufts community is necessarily also being a part of the community that is all of Middlesex County–for Humanists, that means working in solidarity with some of the most marginalized members of that community, and considering ways in all our lives we can be more supportive of them. Our project this week will be to clean up Powderhouse Square, Powderhouse Park, and the Broadway corridor that leads to Ball Square. Cleaning supplies will be provided and all are welcome to join us, no matter your background. Parents and families are encouraged to come as well! For more on the Humanists Against Homelessness initiative, visit the Tufts Humanist Chaplaincy website.
Meet at Mayer Campus Center

7 pm
Protestant Evening Worship
All parents and families are warmly welcome to join in our weekly Protestant worship service. Fellowship and refreshments will follow.
