Event: Hometown Comfort

Our neighborhood is forever changed by the tragedy of April 15.  Dorchester is a community of action and determination and despite our grief and shock we are compelled to act.  We can all make a difference on May 19, 2013 at Hometown Comfort, a day for our community to honor victims and first responders by collecting needed blood for the Red Cross, raising money for The One Fund-Boston, and supporting one another with the embrace of a hometown. All proceeds benefit onefundboston.org.

The host committee includes: Victoria Reggie Kennedy, Mike and Kitty Dukakis, Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino,University of Massachusetts Chancellor J. Keith Motely, Boston Globe Publisher Christopher M. Mayer, New England Council President Jim Brett and Author Dennis Lehane.

Master of Ceremonies for the evening event is Tom Ashbrook host of  NPR’s “On Point”  from WBUR Boston.

The Red Cross will conduct a blood drive from noon to 6 p.m. inside the IBEW Hall at 256 Freeport Street in Dorchester.
