A SPRING DAY WITH SENIORS
Early rising students spent their morning preparing spring baskets with flower seeds, plant pots and fun trinkets for the elderly residents of the Action for Boston Community Development, Inc. (ABCD), a neighborhood center that provides housing for low-income seniors. Another group of students delivered the baskets and hand-made cards to ABCD at the “Villa Michelangelo” in Boston’s North End, staying to chat and share stories with the residents.

FIGHTING HUNGER WITH “Best Buddies”
Suffolk students grabbed their Best Buddies and visited the Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) in South Boston. The Best Buddies program provides one-to-one friendship opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities. Students and their buddies spent their day in the GBFB warehouse taking in shipments and preparing food to be sent throughout New England.

DESIGN FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
New England School of Art & Design students in Professor Karen Clarke’s Sustainable Design for Interiors course hosted “Design for the Environment,” a green/sustainable design trade show in the atrium of 10 St. James Avenue. The trade show educated visitors about green design—maximizing the efficiency of energy and water systems, using recycled materials in construction, and minimizing the environmental impact of construction and operation. (see story pg. 10)

SPRING CLEANING ON THE ESPLANADE
Down by the banks of the River Charles, Suffolk University students got their hands dirty in an effort to clean up the Esplanade in time for spring. Their time was spent raking leaves, cleaning up trash, and beautifying one of Boston’s most famous locations.
