Join us for our annual Holiday Gift Drive to benefit the Carolina Hill Shelter. For over 10 years, members have purchased gifts for families staying at the Carolina Hill Shelter over the holidays, who without our member’s assistance may not have received gifts during the holiday season. This year we have 17 families with 42 children and parents to buy for so if you are interested in making their holidays special, please email laura@crewboston.org to sign up.

This annual CREW Boston tradition is a wonderful way to help brighten the spirits of children and families in need. Carolina Hill is a private, non-profit corporation operating as a transitional shelter for homeless families.

Welcome Back Message from CREW Boston President - Time to Renew Your 2020-2021 Membership

I hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. I also hope that you have found time to enjoy your summer, taking time to relax and re-energize for the year ahead. As President of CREW Boston, I would like to personally welcome you back for another exciting year of outstanding programs, networking and professional development. While we remain virtual for the time being, our commitment to providing excellence in programming and networking opportunities remains steadfast. Over the last four months, CREW Boston and CREW Network have provided three times as many programs as in a typical year – all of which were complimentary to CREW Boston members. As I mentioned at the Annual Meeting, our theme for 2020-2021 is Discovery. In these uncertain times, we are learning, adapting and moving forward. In an effort to acknowledge current challenges, we have increased and extended our early renewal discount through December 18, 2020.
