FAQs - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Is there a minimum age to participate in the service project?

We encourage individuals and families, including children ages 8 or older, to come serve together! Due to the nature of the work, and the project's location along Gorham Street, we do not recommend bringing children under the age of 8. Please reserve one ticket for each member of your group.

The kick-off ceremonies will be at Butler Middle School (1140 Gorham Street, Lowell, MA). You may park in any of the parking lots around the school or in Edson Cemetery across the street from the school. Following the kick-off, we will walk across the street to Edson Cemetery (1375 Gorham Street, Lowell).
