The mission of the Margaret Fuller House is to strengthen and empower youth, families, and community residents. We work to address the economic, social and political inequities that shape the lives and futures of Port/Area IV residents.
Date: Sunday, April 10th
Meeting Place: Clement Morgan Park (right behind the Fuller House!)
Time: 1:00-6:00 (1:00-2:00 Training; 2:00-4:00 Door-to-door; 4:00-6:00 Celebration!)
The American Humanist Association (operating through the
Harvard Humanist Chaplaincy), in conjunction with the Cambridge Energy
Alliance (CEA), the Margaret Fuller House, and Harvard Hope in Action, plans
to hold a CFL (compact fluorescent lightbulb) exchange for Area 4 residents
on April 10th. The last time a CFL distribution was held in Area 4 was over
18 months ago according to CEA, so there should be plenty of demand!
For our event, we will gather a large group of volunteers, including
neighborhood residents, to go door to door from 2-4:00 in Area 4 handing out
free CFLs and information on energy efficiency in exchange for old
incandescents. This is a very direct, simple, and fun way to reduce the
neighborhood’s carbon footprint, while saving the neighborhood’s residents
significantly on their energy bills, alerting them to further “green
savings” opportunities, and raising environmental awareness. It is also a
unique chance for religious people of faith to work together alongside
humanist people of conscience to serve the Cambridge community.
Please join us on Sunday for a great afternoon of service, fellowship, and
We’re planning on having food and music for our celebration!
