As some people
might already know from this Globe
article (or just heard around the neighborhood), the Louis D. Brown Peace
Institute is one of many community programs that got whacked in this last round
of state budget cuts.
In short: the
Fields Corner institute has for nearly 15 years been a place where desperate families
seek emotional and financial support when senseless violence hits home, and it
needs roughly $75,000 to be saved.
certainly needs to be discussion about why programs such as this lose out to
less important, less urban budgetary items, right now the main concern is to
raise funds. For that reason the kind folks from H. Levenbaum Real Estate in Dorchester are throwing a fundraiser.
December 2, at the Blarney Stone (1505 Dorchester Ave.)
you have a chance to help out and drink up from 7pm to 9pm. Any and all
donations are welcome. For more info on other ways to give click here.
