What is Breakfast Club?
Northeastern clubs, organizations and students complete neighborhood cleanups in Mission Hill and Fenway on Sundays. Last semester, we had 200 volunteers! It definitely feels good to give back to our community and neighbors. Long-term residents have taken notice of our hard work and commitment! Northeastern students wear red and black, fill up trash bags and volunteers are entered into a weekly drawing for a $25 gift card to a local restaurant.
Why is it called Breakfast Club? Before COVID, we included a stop for coffee and donuts at a local restaurant. During this time, we are showing support for local businesses through the weekly drawing mentioned above.
Breakfast Club Guidelines for Spring 2021
- Students may only volunteer with roommates living within their household (or campus suite). Groups can be no larger than 6 students.
- Volunteers must bring their mask and wear it the entire time.
- Volunteers must maintain distance from those outside their group at all times.
- OCHSS Community Ambassadors will supply trash bags, gloves, and hand sanitizer. They will also give you your street assignments.
- Volunteer groups will be instructed to meet at specific times (between 12-12:30pm) to avoid crowding.
