Room for rent in Brookline
I currently live with 3 roommates and one of us is leaving so we're looking for a replacement. We plan to post the following to Craigslist this weekend.
Huge room in Brookline $831/month close to 3 green line branches (B,C,D)
Amazing location! Across the street from the C-line, a 5-minute walk to the D-line, and about 10 minutes to the B-line. 5 minutes to grocery store and laundry facilities. This first floor apartment has hardwood floors throughout, eat-in kitchen, and a large living room. Your room is a converted living room with a lot of square footage. Room also comes with a large hall closet for storage.
You will be sharing a bathroom with one other person. Rent includes heat and hot water. We split electric evenly, which is low even in winter and averages $9.00 per person a month. We are about to sign up for a new Internet provider, but expect it will amount to less than $30 per person per month.
About us: We are three friendly, easygoing young professionals. You would be living with two guys and a girl. We get along really well and like to make the apartment a nice place to come home to.
About you: Friendly, laid back, respectful, pay your bills on time, and will keep all common areas clean. Our place is perfect for you if you are looking for a quiet neighborhood, building, and not a party apartment.
Tell us a bit about yourself and we can set up a time to view the room. 12 month lease. Please no undergrads, couples, pets, or smokers. First and last to move in.
Please draft an email to Matt, Drew, and Annie at firstname.lastname@example.org to express interest.

Care Package Project, through Los Angeles RPCVs
At the end of 2012, RPCVLA started a Care Package Project to send encouragement and small gifts to currently serving volunteers around the world, especially those who might not otherwise get a package. PCVs sent us their requests and mailing address through a simple online form, then we put together packages at our 2012 and 2013 holiday parties, along with a few other events during the year, and our members contributed the postage to mail them. So far, we have sent 125 packages and have received numerous messages, emails, and photos of thanks and joy. If you are interested in getting involved please go to the website below.
