Community at Large

CBC members routinely contribute low-sugar cereal and other staples to food pantries that serve the needs of those in the Cambridge community. Through its partnership with the Cambridge Economic Opportunity Committee, CBC donates food that help supply the needs of pantries that serve more than 1,400 families in the city.

Each holiday season, CBC holds a Holiday Toy Collection and distributes toys, games and other items for children to families who are living in shelters in the Cambridge community.

A much-anticipated CBC activity is the club’s annual distribution of chrysanthemums that decorate the grounds of the club during the Head of the Charles Regatta. These beautiful flowers are delivered shortly after the event to more than a dozen Cambridge nonprofit organizations and government agencies.

Given its location on the banks of the Charles River and its large porch with beautiful river views, the CBC boathouse is a popular place to hold an event. The club provides special rates for nonprofit organizations and public agencies that wish to host events at its facility.
