Do you have an hour to spare each week? Homebound seniors need your help. The Woburn Meals on Wheels program is in urgent need of drivers! Last year, 159 Woburn seniors received Meals on Wheels, allowing them to stay in their own homes. 

Meals on Wheels is a long-standing national program serving mid-day meals to our most vulnerable seniors. The seniors are so grateful for your time. Just the brief interaction improves their health and well-being. And drivers report finding their work very meaningful.

For more information, call or e-mail Liz Rowe, Volunteer and Special Projects Coordinator at Minutemen Senior Services, (781) 221-7093 or l.rowe@minutemensenior.oeg.

Meals are provided by Minutemen Senior Services, a nonprofit organization that helps seniors and people with disabilities live in the setting of their choice by engaging community resources and supporting caregivers.

Volunteer Opportunity of the Week!

Take advantage of this beautiful spring weather by getting outside and volunteering at a local community garden! 

The North Suburban YMCA is looking for volunteers on Friday, May 17th anytime between 8:30AM-6:00PM to help plant and finish prepping garden boxes at their community garden!
Volunteers may stay as long as they would like. Whole Foods Market in Woburn will also be stopping by to help out.

SCI and the YMCA teamed up last summer during National Volunteer Week to kick start the "Giving Garden," but volunteers are still needed to help maintain it throughout the summer. For more information or to volunteer, please contact Annie Medonis at amedonis@ymcaboston.org.

Another option for volunteers looking to help out at a community garden is at the Woburn Food Pantry's community garden plot! Last year, the Council of Social Concern hosted it and tons of volunteers came out to help make it a smashing success. Now, they are looking for new helpers this year to tend to the garden!

Volunteers can help out with planting, weeding, watering and harvesting the garden. If you are interested in volunteering at the community garden, please contact the garden coordinator Clarinda Massengill at (978) 761-0795 or cm1665@comcast.net.
