Join Home Instead at the 1st Annual St. Paddy's Plunge in Milton, MA

Join our Home Instead team for the first annual St. Paddy's Plunge St. Paddy’s Plunge on Saturday, March 16, 2024!

You can make a difference by joining in on the fun of a cold water plunge! This year, the Milton Rotary is launching a NEW event in town to raise awareness and money for both food insecurity benefiting the Milton Food Pantry and Milton youth programming and scholarships issued through the Milton Rotary Foundation. We are thrilled to be part of this very exciting event for the very first time!
