Gracenotes is proud to partner once again with the American Red Cross Boston Food Pantry for the Thanksgiving holiday.  The American Red Cross works within the food network, with food distributors and community-based agencies, to coordinate services and develop local solutions to the problem of hunger.

Berklee volunteers will work in collaboration with American Red Cross staff to distribute food to those in need this Thanksgiving holiday. Each year, Berklee volunteers make a difference in the lives of over 3000 families in the Boston area. This is a great opportunity to work comfortably in a diverse environment and give back to our community.
