Domino’s Pizza Parking Lot 836 Ashley Blvd  New Bedford

What better way to help local High School seniors offset some of their upcoming higher education costs than by us helping to build up scholarship funds?

We’re proud and privileged to be a small part of helping.

If for some reason, your car is always “spotless”,  please think about purchasing some on-line (below) “NO-SHOW” tickets to help local high school scholars!

Photos from last year are here.1

Uber Volunteer and Beekeeper Bill O’Keefe introduces 40,002 new volunteers to GiftsToGive

Uber volunteer Bill O’Keefe has volunteered (one more time!) to add beekeeping to his management of our tomato garden.

Each year we grow very special heirloom tomatoes, gifted to us by local attorney Bob Feingold. Seventy-five percent we donate to the city food pantry, the balance we divide among volunteers. Last year we harvested 1,100 pounds!

When researching bees, student interns discovered a mystery. Colony Collapse Disorder – Pesticides and the perfect crime. Widespread bee die-offs, and bees often just vanishing. One beekeeper calls it the Perfect Crime—no bodies, no murder weapon, no bees. What’s happening to the bees?
