On July 30th, MIT hosted CityDay, an annual one-day volunteer opportunity for MIT faculty. The Public Service Center secured service placements for MIT faculty who registered for the CityDays campaign, provided the staff with logistical support, and sponsored a celebratory BBQ for those who completed their service and returned to campus. ODGE staff members assisted the Heading Home Inc. program, an organization which provides support to formerly homeless or low-income families in and and around the Boston community. The service also bestows emergency, transitional and permanent housing for the homeless in order to help individuals “get back on track” and restore and develop stability in their lives.
