Compass on the Bay Hosts Spring Weekend of Service

BOSTON, MA – The outdoor gardens at Compass on the Bay in South Boston are looking as colorful as ever thanks to a group of volunteers who took part in the Memory Support Assisted Living community’s Spring Weekend of Service. During the weekend event, volunteers from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Services, Northeastern University, and the Sigma Kappa sorority at Northeastern spent time gardening, hosting trivia games, and getting to know residents.  

“It’s always a fun time when we have students come in to take part in intergenerational programming with residents, but to have them devote their weekend to service projects like this was really special,” said Compass on the Bay Executive Director Jenna Petrenko. “We really want to thank all of the volunteers and we hope to be able to host an event like this again in the future.”

Located on Columbia Road in South Boston, Compass on the Bay is an Assisted Living community dedicated exclusively to those with memory loss. For more information on Compass on the Bay or its enriching lifelong learning programming model, please visit
