More than 35 teens partnered with Cambridge Police for several community service projects during spring break last week.
The teens cleaned and repainted the Margaret Fuller House pantry, covered graffiti on more than 35 United States Postal Service mailboxes, organized the East End House food pantry and provided yard clean-up for senior citizens in East Cambridge, among other projects, according to Cambridge Police.
The community service week ran from April 16 through April 20 and was the first sponsored by Cambridge Police, which invited high school students to give back to their community by volunteering up to 20 hours of their school vacation.
Police provided lunch for the participants each day and held a raffle giving teens the opportunity to win $10 gift certificates to Christina’s or JP Lick’s ice cream shops in Cambridge.
