Over 70 Winsor community members came together at Boston's Pine Street Inn for the annual Chop-a-Thon, held Saturday, February 23.
Over 70 members of the Winsor community came together at Boston's Pine Street Inn on Saturday, February 23 for the annual Chop-a-Thon.
"The Chop-a-Thon is a wonderful event when the entire Winsor community comes together to contribute to the New England's largest resource for homeless men and women," says parent organizer Suzanne Szak P'23.
For the week leading up to the event, Winsor students dropped off carrots, celery, potatoes, and fruit. Regis Downes and the great crew of Winsor's facilities helped store the daily contributions, and parents loaded their cars and delivered the produce to the Pine Street Inn.
On Saturday morning, the group of more than 70 students, staff and their families gathered at the PSI kitchen to chop the veggies and fruits ... nearly 1,000 pounds in total! While most volunteers were busy chopping, young siblings decorated cookies and cupcakes.
Parent organizers Suzanne Szak P'23, Kiera Carlisle P'25 and Claudia Noury-Ello P'25 generously donated their time and energy to organize all aspects of the day, in coordination with the tireless efforts of Winsor's constituent relations coordinator Lily Cole-Chu, and Regis Downes, Winsor's head of food services.
