Do you like to share your culture through cooking? We have the project for you! Let us know if you're interested in leading one of the #WoburnUnites Cultural Connections suppers. 

We are excited to join with Woburn Public Library, YMCA International Learning Center and James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn on this project. If you'd like to join one of these events, as opposed to leading one, stay tuned... more info on that will be coming soon!

Shovelers

SCI would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that helped with our shoveling for seniors program this past weekend. Thanks to you we were able to get many seniors across Woburn shoveled out, helping many of them where they would have been otherwise unable to get out of their homes.

As the season continues we are still seeking Woburn residents that will be able to help us if further needs arise. We are consistently getting new seniors added to our list and will need people that can check in over the next few days to see that people get a little extra shoveling help.

If you are able to do a little more shoveling over the next few days, please let me know and I will try to match you with seniors that are still in need.
