"I eat at Haley House all the time," he said, pulling out all of the change from his pockets.
maggieeditedLast Friday, as Haley House's neighbor Maggie sat on her stoop selling raffle tickets for the Silent Auction, two passerbys stood out in their generosity.  Seeing the signs that read "Help Haley House" and "Haley House Raffle!!", one man kept on walking.  A minute later, he turned around and walked back, pulling a five dollar bill out of his pocket to give to Maggie while saying "Haley House does good work.  I go there for breakfast."  Later that afternoon, another man stopped mid-stride, pulled out a handful of change from his pockets, and said "I eat at Haley House all the time".  Thanks to the generous words and support of our soup kitchen guests, neighbors, and friends, the Silent Auction was a wonderful success. A huge "Thank you!" to all involved!

apartheidDinner & A Movie:
Roadmap to Apartheid

Saturday, June 16 at 6:00pm, Haley House Bakery Cafe

The Roxbury International Film Festival, in conjunction with Haley House Bakery Cafe, will be showing the film "Roadmap to Apartheid" by filmmakers Ana Nogueira, a white South African, and Eron Davidson, a Jewish Israeli. Drawing on their first-hand knowledge of the issues, the producers take a close look at the apartheid comparison often used to describe the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The film breaks down the rhetorical analogy into a fact-based comparison, noting where the analogy is useful and appropriate, and where it is not.  Read more and buy tickets here!
