Habitat for Humanity

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who pitched in on Sunday, June 23 to help finish Henri and Annie’s home on Franklin Street in Lawrence – Amy, J.P., and Rebecca Lee, Jon, Ellen, and Deena Brody, Suzanne and Seth Grosz, together with volunteers from Temple Emanuel and Havurat Shalom. It was great to have such an enthusiastic turnout from CBI! Thanks to your work, Henri, Annie and their children were able to move into their new home in late July.

On Sunday, September 8 we will be returning to 99 Franklin Street to plant shrubs and trees and to make the home as welcoming on the outside as it is inside. If you’d like to help with planting, or donate to purchase a shrub, please contact Susannah at
