Class Service Project at Lasell Laser Welcome Weekend
Here at Lasell College, we care about the community. Each year, the incoming class collectively donates supplies to a local charity. This year, your class will be giving food, toiletry or home cleaning items to the Centre Street Food Pantry, an independant nonprofit 501 (c) 3 organization that serves residents of Newton, Brookline, Needham, Allston/Brighton, Watertown and Wellesley. As you pack for college, you may choose to bring extra products such as non-perishable food iteams, hygiene products, or househool/paper products to contribute to those in need. Donations may be dropped off at Check-In on Friday, September 5,  2014 during Lasell Laser Welcome Weekend at the Center for Community-Based Learning's Table.
