Thanks to the support of our neighbors and friends, we raised $7,000 and provided Thanksgiving meals to over 400 local families, a total of 22,000 pounds of food. We really had a successful Turkey Drive and we want to thank all of the fantastic volunteers who worked incredibly hard getting, moving, organizing, and giving out the food (and cleaning up)!!! It was such an impressive day and we hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving.

About 200 volunteers gathered in our backyard last Saturday to build a playground for the kids of the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House and the entire Area IV community. It was a tremendous day.
For seven straight hours, adults from far and wide worked outside, hammering, hauling and pouring concrete.
Indoors, the kids painted panels that spelled out the letters of the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House.
So many people worked for months to make it happen, and they all deserve our thanks. But our kids would still be playing on a tired pair of monkey bars and a couple of raggedy slides if not for the generous support of Boston Properties, Gillette, and- of course- the national non-profit KaBOOM!
Thanks to you, and hundreds of volunteers, we now have what one of our kids described as “a miracle.”

Today (Monday, 2/6) we’re beginning free Mindfulness Trainings at the house!
Happy New Year!
We’re excited to bring you our new Margaret Fuller House Newsletter.
We’ve titled the newsletter ‘Conversations’ to remember the meetings Margaret Fuller hosted in Boston during the 1830s. She created gatherings, called ‘conversations’, where intellectual and activist women could speak freely. During these meetings, Fuller encouraged attendees to further explore topics they were passionate about.
We hope you enjoy our first issue and we welcome all suggestions!
