About Brighton
map
The area of Brighton was established in the late 17th century and was first known as "Little Cambridge". The residents acquired legal separation from Cambridge in 1807 and officially named the town Brighton. The town was then officially annexed to the City of Boston in 1874 and it remains a part of Boston today.

In post colonial days Brighton was home to agricultural plots and stockyards, but with the extension of the street car lines in the 1800s came residential growth. Soon houses and apartments were built all across the neighborhoods.

Brighton is primarily populated by graduate students and young professionals. Along Washington Street you will find small family businesses and Saint Elizabeth's Hospital - reputed as one of the finest hospitals in the northeast.

Brighton is host to the Bryman Institute, Saint John's Seminary and part of Boston College. Nearby you will find some of the finest institutes of higher learning in the country including Boston University, Harvard University and MIT.

BYHP HealthIMPACT @ Cradles to Crayons!

BYHP HealthIMPACT is kicking off this year's volunteering efforts with an opportunity for BYHP members and supporters to contribute to a local group's efforts in providing for children in need.

Cradles to Crayons, formally launched in Boston in 2002, provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive - at home, at school and at play. These items are supplied to families free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need.

Cradles to Crayons welcomes BYHP HealthIMPACT to its Brighton facility to assist in the processing and packaging of donations! If interested please sign up on EventBrite AND pre-register with Cradles to Crayons using below registration link and registration code (which will be provided in January 2015):

 

Registration link: http://www.cradlestocrayons.org/preregister

Registration code: a0RC000000FZql8

(when you copy and paste, make sure this is no space bar or the code will be invalid)

 

While Cradles to Crayon's model runs on volunteers, they also depend on having an ample supply of new and like-new children's items. We encourage you to collect like-new children's items from family and friends to bring with you as donations for the day of the event!

If you have any questions regarding the event please feel free to reach out to the HealthIMPACT Chair, David (david@byhp.org). We look forward to seeing you on February 7th!
