Knitting together help for the homeless
Hats left on Boston Common in small gesture of warmth
THERE ARE GRAND policy plans and programs to serve the homeless – and then there are more direct, small acts of kindness.
Last night, a team of 300 volunteers and city officials, led by Mayor Marty Walsh, hit the streets to conduct Boston’s 38th annual homeless census, an effort to gather information on the homeless population that will inform the coordination and delivery of services to those on the streets.
Bostonians are sometimes pegged as a brusque and unfriendly lot. One kind knitter is making a statement otherwise.
