On Thursday, October 17th South Boston Community Health Center will be hosting our Harvest of Hope 2019 benefitting programs and services to ensure access to health care for South Boston families. The event will take place at the Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel.
For nearly half a century, the health center has been an invaluable resource for South Boston families. We are the only provider of primary and preventive health services in the South Boston neighborhood, providing over 70,000 visits a year to nearly half of the neighborhood population. Our services include addiction prevention and recovery; an expanded food pantry where we feed over 400 patient families a month; a free patient shuttle to ensure access to those most in need and a recently opened Convenient Care Center that expands hours and access. In 2016, we launched South Boston Health Seaport - the first and only provider of primary health services to the Seaport district.
This year, we are pleased to be honoring two outstanding individuals - former Congressman Mike Capuano and Kevin Tyo - with Partner In Hope Awards in recognition of their tremendous support of our mission.
Underwritten by Cargo Ventures and Alexandria Real Estate, the evening will include outstanding live and silent auction items, scrumptious food and cocktails and lively entertainment. WCVB's Mike Wankum will serve as MC and Auctioneer. It should be a wonderful evening. Please join the festivities, bid high, and help support South Boston Community Health Center!
