This fall the Middlesex community service program is working with Heading Home, a Boston-based nonprofit that places homeless families in permanent housing through a program called Up & Out moves. Middlesex junior Ryan Ewing, who has been involved with Heading Home for many years and was named Volunteer of the Year in 2013, spearheaded the effort. Middlesex volunteers donated and collected furniture, home goods, and decorations in order to prepare the family's new home on Sunday, October 25th. On the move-in day, after the group finished assembling everything in the apartment, the family arrived, and the Middlesex volunteers had a chance to greet them as they walked into their new home for the first time. For all involved, it was a rewarding experience. Thanks to the many Middlesex families who supported the project.
