Charles River Cleanup 2017.
On Saturday, April 29, 2017, Albanian American Lawyers joined the Esplanade Association and members of the Boston Bar Association Affinity Groups to volunteer to clean up the Charles River. Due to inactivity in the winter, and massive snow fall this season, the park needed help removing all of the sitting refuse left over the past five months.

Cradles to Crayons 2016.
Childhood poverty is a serious nationwide issue. The average U.S. family in poverty, with two adults and two children, lives on less than $24,000 a year. Without adequate and appropriate clothing, children face unfair barriers and participate in life on an unequal playing field. On September 17, 2016, the Albanian American Bar Association joined the South Asian Bar Association of Greater Boston to volunteer for Cradles to Crayons which provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play. The group put together outfits for needy children, from newborn baby boys to pre-teen girls!
