Making a Difference: BPD Volunteers for Boston Shines

On Saturday, April 25, 2015, Sergeant Luke Taxter and Boston police officers from the District D-4 (South End) Community Service Office joined Washington Gate Main Street Inc., Boston University Government & Community Affairs, and Roxbury community members to do some spring cleaning in Ramsay Park for Boston Shines. These volunteers were among many that came together all over Boston for the first weekend of Boston Shines, a project focused on expanding volunteer opportunities and local university engagement, youth development, and uniting neighbors and communities. In case you missed Boston Shines in your neighborhood this weekend, there are still plenty of opportunities to volunteer this spring.
