BOSTON (January 14, 2010) — Simmons College student Kassie Carlson received the 2009 CHAMP Homes Fragile Earth Award from the Housing for All Corporation at its annual award ceremony on Dec. 12 in Hyannis, Mass. CHAMP Homes is a program of the Housing for All Corporation and provides housing for the homeless on Cape Cod, Mass., and the surrounding islands.
Carlson, a senior at Simmons College, was one of four recipients of the Fragile Earth Award; recipients are chosen for their actions to protect the environment. Carlson received the award for her work with the Food Not Bombs program. Once a week with the organization, she delivers food to more than 150 people, as well as hats and gloves to them in the winter. She uses a bicycle with a pizza trailer for deliveries, which uses zero carbon dioxide. Carlson also traveled to Paris last summer to see how Food Not Bombs is active in Europe.
Carlson works as a fundraiser for the Boston Symphony Orchestra. She has volunteered with other non-profits near her hometown of Hyannis, Mass., such as the Big Brother Big Sister Association and the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
