Amnesty International
Amnesty International's mission is to teach justice for those across the world who are wrongfully accused or mistreated. These goals will be achieved through actions such as petition signing and letter writing, as well as raising money for specific groups who are in need of help.

Best Buddies
Best Buddies International is a non-profit dedicated to inclusion. It works to pair people with and without intellectual and/or developmental disabilities in one-to-one friendships. They advocate for disability rights, provide safe and fun social activities, and strive for equality for people of all ability levels. Our plan for this year is to work as a "Promoter Chapter", in which we would not have buddy pairs, but would fundraise and raise awareness for Best Buddies, and encourage people to join.

Emmanuel College Community Outreach (ECCO)
ECCO works to promote social justice and service throughout the greater Boston community.

EC Dance Marathon (ECDM)
Emmanuel College Dance Marathon is a part of the nation-wide Miracle Network Dance Marathon programs that raise money for local Children Miracle Network Hospitals. We raise funds for Boston Children's Hospital to improve research, child life, and family support and care.

Habitat for Humanity
We partner with the Habitat for Humanity Greater Boston Affiliate to beautify the local community and offer a life-changing opportunity to those desperately needing housing assistance. We participate in builds throughout the year and fund raise to help provide assistance to those in need within our community.

Our mission is to help families achieve greater freedom from the constraints of poverty and empower them to live healthier lives. We aim to achieve this goal by partnering with motivated individuals from the EC community.

One World Strong
Through the support of the One World Strong Foundation, we will connect Emmanuel and COF students to our peers all across the world. Our goal will be to form real friendships and open ourselves up to conversations about topics like culture and religion, as well as have the opportunity to speak with experts in fields such as medicine, government, and law.

Saints Giving Back
We work to give back to our community by providing home-cooked meals and desserts for the patients of Boston Children's Hospital and their families while also learning to cook and bake.

Tight Knit
Tight Knit is a community outreach club that hones in on the ability of our campus knitters and other yarn crafts to create much needed cold weather attire for local homeless shelters and hospital patients.
