CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Following its practice Tuesday, Jan. 17, the No. 24 Harvard men's basketball team visited the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston's Blue Hill Club/George Robert White Youth Development Center.
The Harvard student-athletes took part in five different types of activities with the children, ages 6-18, during the team's two-hour visit to the Boys & Girls Club: basketball, arts and crafts, music production, homework center and computer center.
The Crimson also hosted 20 members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston during the Jan. 7 home game against Dartmouth.
Children and staff from the Blue Hill Club/George Robert White Youth Development Center from Dorchester and the Gerald and Darlene Jordan Club/Kraft Family Youth Center from Chelsea watched the Crimson earn its first Ivy League win of the season, as Harvard topped Dartmouth, 63-47.
Following the game, Harvard players interacted with children and then signed autographs for them.
