East Boston Social Centers

We know that when small acts of kindness and care are multiplied, it can strengthen a community. Whether you can give $5 today or $500, all of it helps the families and individuals impacted by the Princeton St fire. Thank you for your contribution!

As many of you have witnessed, on Tuesday, July 19, 2022, there was a dreadful fire on Princeton St. There were huge flames that swallowed the home of 20 adults and 8 kids. In addition, our neighbors have lost their bed, clothes, and a cat that unfortunately passed away. At this very moment, at least 20 adults and 8 kids are displaced and vulnerable.

We acknowledge that there are groups of neighbors already working on food and clothing drives, and we know that getting food and clothes to our neighbors is very important. We also acknowledge that this fire has started a hard journey for the affected families and individuals, and they will need financial support in the near future. 

Mutual Aid Eastie and the Social Centers are jointly and transparently fundraising for these families and individuals. We are asking the community of East Boston, our neighbors, and you for support and donations. As we raise these funds, we are working to contact each individual affected by the fire; we are asking for their most urgent need and working with them to get back on their feet. 

Any amount of funds that you can donate is helpful. However, 100% of the funds donated will go to the families affected by the fire. Mutual Aid Eastie and the Social Center are committed to working with the families, distributing these funds equitably, and honoring transparency with our community of East Boston.
