Event description

Description

Kids, teens and families are invited to join Project Giving Kids for our fourth annual Create the Change Day Boston on Sunday, November 3rd from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. the Reggie Lewis Athletic Center at Roxbury Community College. Join us for an afternoon of hands-on service curated especially for youth and families. We will be assembling hygiene kits for people in need, crafting fleece blankets for shelter animals, stuffing backpacks to benefit homeless students, writing holiday cards for troops overseas, and much more. Whether age 3, 13, or 30, help us spread messages of hope and leave with a lot of ideas for how you can #CreateTheChange every day in your own backyard. There will also be music, snacks, raffle prizes, and other fun you don't want to miss. Projects will benefit local nonprofits including the MSPCA, School on Wheels Massachusetts, Rosie's Place, Friends of Boston's Homeless, and more.

FAQs


Is there a minimum age limit to enter the event?

We encourage young families as well as teens to join in the fun. Most projects are suitable for ages 3+, although some adult facilitation will be required for those on the younger side of things. All children MUST be accompanied by an adult. Waivers are required for all participants, and must be signed off on by a parent or guardian for those under age 18. The waiver form is integrated into the ticketing process.


Do I need a ticket to enter the event?

Yes. All participants need to have an individual ticket or be a part of a family ticket. This helps with our planning, including project estimation and supplies, and helps support PGK, the 501 (c)(3) public charity organizing and hosting this event. PGK wants ALL kids, teens and families who want to make a difference to join us to #CreateTheChange! If the ticket donation amount is a concern, just email us at info@projectgivingkids.org and we'll provide you with a code so you can secure your ticket(s) at no cost.


Do I need to print my ticket(s) in advance?

No. We are "going green" and will simply be checking registered participants in by name and/or scanning digital tickets at check-in to streamline the process. Simply have your auto-generated tickets ready on your phone at check-in.


What are my parking options at the event?

There is both lot parking availble for the Reggie Lewis Athletic Center as well as street parking often available on Sundays. Reggie Lewis is also accessible via the T at Roxbury Crossing. For detailed travel and parking information, click here.


What can I bring to the event?

Bringing something to the event is not required, but if you want to add to the impact of the day (and earn an extra raffle ticket), we will be collecting items for some of our nonprofit partners at the event to assist them in their work. Participants are invited to bring any of the following on 11/3:

  • New sneakers for homeless students living in local shelters supported by Gotta Have Sole
  • Adult socks for homeless individuals served by St. Francis House
  • New and/or gently used baby board books for babies and toddlers born into poverty served by Room To Grow (Spanish and ethnicly-diverse books needed)
  • Hand and feet warmers for homeless individuals served by Friends of Boston's Homeless


Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

If you have any questions about the event, please contact Project Giving Kids at info@projectgivingkids.org.


We hope to see you on November 3!
