WHAT:           Friday FreeCycle

Thanks to the generosity of Boston Properties, we will be able to hold the event in their beautiful and spacious lobby.  At the end of the event, we will pick up and donate leftovers, if any, to local charities, other FreeCycles, and our weekly Thursday Surplus Distribution events in Allston.

Bring all surplus goods from your home, office and garage.  We will accept anything you no longer need, but which you think may be useful to someone else.  Come to shop and bring your reusable bag!  We look forward to seeing you there.  We also need volunteers to receive and display donations, help people find bags or boxes for transporting materials, and cleaning up. If you are interested in helping, please let me know. In the past, especially popular items include:
