Hi, My name is Cole Strachan. I am 17 and a Junior at Boston Latin School and I am from Charlestown. Growing up I always valued teamwork and more importantly, helping those in need. During this pandemic, I wanted to find a way to help, and I believe that A Helping Elbow is the best way we can make a difference.

I live in Brighton, and I believe that not only in times of crisis we should look to help those who are most times forgotten and neglected by their communities. I want to be able to assist those who are struggling and need help, and ensure good health and wellbeing to everyone in my community.

Director of Mask Production

My name is Taylor, and I’m a junior at Boston Latin School. I chose to be a part of Helping Elbow because I wanted to help out those in the Greater Boston area who need it; Through this initiative, I hope to make a difference in my community and inspire others to do the same.



My name is Matthew Balitskiy, I'm 17 and a junior at Boston Latin School. Having two grandmothers stuck inside their homes unable to go outside to get groceries, I realized how hard of a situation some people are in, so when I heard of this organization I knew I wanted to help people like my grandmother in getting their necessities.
