Go Green with FCSN on December 22!
By Erin Anguish, Communications Coordinator
The Federation is proud to have been selected for the Prudential Center’s 10th Annual “31 Nights of Light” event! Each night in December, the top of the tower will be lit a different color in support of the evening’s designated non-profit partner. 12/22 is our night, and we’ll light it up green!
To celebrate, we’re inviting friends and supporters to join us for a FREE, family-friendly celebration at 4:00 pm on December 22. We’ll have food, entertainment, treats, and more, plus “Blades”, the Boston Bruins mascot and a special guest to “Flip the Switch” and turn on the tower’s lights.
If Boston is a bit too far, there’s another easy way to join the festivities! String up some green holiday lights, wear your favorite green pants, put a green bulb in your porch lamp, and share your photos on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter! Our hashtag is #31NightsFCSN. We’ll feature your pictures on our website and social media accounts to shine a “light” on Massachusetts families.
The green heart in our logo represents our Special Education Parent Center: there at the very beginning of our organization, so it is fitting that we chose green as the color for “31 Nights of Light”. The Special Education Parent Center includes the Parent Consultant Training Institute (PCTI), the Parent Training and Information Center (PTIC), the LINK Center, and “SEPO” (an in-depth exploration of special education placement options). Perhaps most significantly, this Center encompasses the hard work of our fantastic outreach staff.
Sites across the state will join in our celebration – current partners include the Zakim Bridge and Charlestown’s Schrafft Center. Is there a building or organization in YOUR community that would like to take part? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with ideas!
Whether your family participates in-person at the Prudential Center or remotely online, we appreciate your support – on 12/22 and every day! Help us shine the light on all Massachusetts families and Go GREEN with the Federation!
