MSPCA Boston Adoption Center

We volunteer consistently with the Boston MSPCA, an organization that’s mission is “to protect animals, relieve their suffering, advance their health and welfare, prevent cruelty, and work for a just and compassionate society.” This past year, we helped the MSPCA raise around $19,226.55 combined at their holiday & valentine's day bake sale!

Greater Boston Food Bank

We also volunteer regularly at the Greater Boston Food Bank, “the largest hunger-relief organization in New England and among the largest food banks in the country. Last year, [they] distributed 68.5 million pounds of nutritious food to people who struggle to have enough to eat.” From sorting food donations, to packing food for shipping as a group, we have been able to contribute to the area of Boston in significant ways, including packing 4,176 lbs of food (enough for 3480 meals) for families in need.

Cradles to Crayons

Cradles to Crayons, an organization that “provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive,” has provided us with the opportunity to help a total of 210 kids with the clothes we have sorted during our volunteering hours. 

Film2Future

In the Fall of 2018, Xi Gamma Nu raised over $600 for Film2Future, an organization that, "promotes change by giving under-served youth access to education and employment opportunities." The event provided an opportunity to try virtual reality, viewing five of the program’s students’ short films, as well as three commercials through our first ever film screening.
