Two fantastic companies are teaming up to give away a one year rent-free apartment in Boston to benefit Y2Y Harvard Square – the nation’s first student-run shelter for homeless youth.
Sumu is a Boston based startup that provides safe and efficient solutions for renting a home. Their partnership with Flutter, the online fundraising platform for local charities, will give away one-year of rent-free living at Chroma Cambridge luxury apartments.Those who wish to enter can donate $10 to Y2Y Harvard Square on the Sumu fundraising site site.
Y2Y Co-Founder Sam Greenberg stated, “We’re really excited to partner with these amazing companies who are coming together to support our cause. Affordable housing affects everyone from the homeless to professionals struggling to pay rent. The money will help fund current programs and initiatives, and allow us to have serious discussions about expanding on those to better serve more of the homeless youth population in our area.”
The one-bedroom, one-bathroom Chroma Cambridge apartment will come fully furnished by Wayfair, complete with decor and stainless steel appliances.
This initiative is part of the #YearInBoston campaign and will choose one lucky winner on June 1, 2016.
