Halloween is known as a day of fun and mischief, but we're making it one of service too! Join SPARK Boston at Women's Lunch Place, Back Bay's premiere day shelter for unhoused women to see their incredible programs in a whole new light. Over drinks and snacks, you can learn more about their incredible work empowering this vulnerable community and how you can get involved as a volunteer or a member of their Young Professionals program. Costumes are encouraged - it is a Halloween party after all! 

You can support WLP by bringing a pair of new socks, gift card to Dunkin' or Starbucks, or another high need in-kind donation item. We'll also be doing an on-site service project as part of the event. So tell your friends and get your spooky season on with SPARK Boston!
