As we move from the fall season to winter, Ethos thanks our wonderful volunteers who have worked hard over the past two months raking local seniors’ yards.  Over 90 volunteers contributed this important effort, helping 20 seniors live at home with dignity and independence this fall!  A big thank you goes out to the following groups and individuals who participated: MABWorks of Allston, UMass Boston, Northeastern University, Dan Holder & Denis Murphy, Annie Fletcher, Commonwealth High School, MIT, Meichelle Ferguson, Boston Community Leadership Academy, and Boston Arts Academy.
