Ray Offenheiser of Westford Street, Oxfam America president, celebrated his organization's new home at 226 Causeway Street in Boston on February 9. Oxfam America was founded in 1970 in response to a humanitarian crisis in Bangladesh. In 1973 the office moved from Washington DC to the Boston area, first to the basement of the Eliot Church in Newton. After three subsequent moves, the organization, with its 115 employees, is now located in downtown Boston, across from North Station. Offenheiser has been president of Oxfam America since 1995.
