Thank you MIT for making the Margaret Fuller House passenger van a reality!

Community Giving at MIT launched our first ever mini-campaign in 2017 to raise funds for a passenger van for the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House (MFNH). With a ton of help and enthusiasm from MIT donors and department ambassadors, MIT raised $14,000 toward the van, and assisted the Margaret Fuller House in securing a $30,000 grant from the Amelia Peabody Charitable Fund. We are thrilled that the Margaret Fuller House purchased the passenger van in March! The van is on the road and is making transportation possible for its school programs, field trips, meal deliveries, medical appointments, check-in visits with elders, and job interviews and training. Our fundraising efforts continue this year to help defray van expenses, including insurance, driver’s salary, gas, and maintenance.

Christina Alexis, the Executive Director of the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House extends her sincerest thanks to MIT on behalf of the MFNH staff and community members.

Located just a few blocks from MIT, the Margaret Fuller Neighborhood House has been a touchstone in the Port since 1902. Its multi-generational programs serve 4,000 residents and its food pantry provides nourishment to 16,000 individuals and families each year.
