Welcome to the Princeton Association of New England - Give an Hour to Say "Thanks"


Give an Hour to Say "Thanks"

Spread the Word About Your Charity and Grow PANE's Instagram Community

PANE has the start of an Instagram presence--find usat: https://instagram.com/PrincetonInBoston
PANE is also interested in diversifying the community service opportunities that we can offer to our local Princeton community.
We invite you to instagram any of your local community service, civic engagement, involvement with non-profits to Princeton in Boston--as a way of making us all aware of great possibilities for local service that already have Princetonians actively involved in them.

If you like this idea, but are not currently involved in a community service project, here are some ideas:

"Give An Hour to Say Thanks"


To celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, PANE is encouraging alumni to give an hour of their time to a worthy cause. How you choose to donate your time is entirely up to you. The goal is to become more mindful of our blessings. To be thankful for what we might otherwise take for granted.


You decide where, when and how to donate your. Here are some suggestions from the PANE Board:


·      Clean up something (a local waterway, park, sidewalk, street…)

·      Fix or build something (an object, a system, a methodology…)

·      Donate something (clothes, housewares, technology…

·      Share something (knowledge, opportunities, advice…)


The following organizations will welcome PANE members who would like to participate in their projects:
