West Roxbury effort aims to feed those in need
Groups, police handout dinners
Dozens of Boston-area families and seniors were given Thanksgiving groceries Tuesday from the Family in Need effort, organized by three West Roxbury organizations and the Boston Police Department. For the past 15 years, a list of needy families was compiled by the police, West Roxbury Business and Professional Association, West Roxbury YMCA, and Ethos/AgeWell West Roxbury. The group then worked with the grocery store Roche Bros., which provided discounted groceries to be distributed to the families.
