The charitable event, held at Andover Country Club in Andover, Mass. on June 6, included 134 golfers and an additional 21 dinner attendees.
In addition to offering warm meals and a safe place to sleep, the Boston Rescue Mission participates in food recovery in and around Boston. Working in partnership with Feeding Our Neighbors, a New England NACE initiative, the funds raised will help to outfit existing vans with safe and reliable refrigeration to allow an expanded radius of food rescue in and beyond the city. Additional funds will help Boston Rescue Mission purchase an upgraded food transport van.
