Our Generous Friends and Neighbors

In the short time that Friends has existed, community generosity has been outstanding.  Some of the early support includes –

  • Creative design, branding and website development by Sametz Blackstone Associates
  • Hosting of 3 volunteer appreciation events this school year by Barbara Lynch at her South End restaurants and test kitchen, B & G Oysters, The Butcher Shop, and Stir
  • Donation of swim suits and towels by TJX Companies for Blackstone students to receive swimming instruction at the school
  • Legal assistance from Jason Cotton of Arnold and Peabody, for incorporation and filing with the IRS for tax-exempt status
  • Accounting assistance from John Schachter + Associates
  • Payment for translation services to ensure parent participation in the development of the school mission and vision statements
  • Support for the school staff in preparing Thanksgiving baskets for school families
