Woburn Senior Center Luncheon- Volunteer Opportunity

From date: 
Sat, 04/11/2015 - 9:30am

The Woburn Senior Center is looking for volunteers to help out at their Volunteer Appreciation Day luncheon on Saturday, April 11, at the Woburn Senior Center.

Volunteers will help set up at 9:30am, help serve beverages and meals at 11:30am, and/or help clean up at 1:30pm. This is a great opportunity for everyone, especially elementary school students (with a parent) looking for YES hours. You can choose a shift, or volunteer the whole day!

We at SCI Woburn, in partnership with the Woburn Senior Center, have become aware that there are some seniors in our community who are in need of serious shoveling assistance. There are some serious safety issues involved-- e.g. one elderly woman living alone is struggling to keep her gas vent clear. Therefore, SCI is matching youth volunteers with seniors in the community who desperately need snow removal. 

SCI is looking for local, Woburn youth interested in receiving community service hours, such as YES, confirmation, scout service, etc, to help meet this need. If an advisor, coach, or parent has students willing to volunteer, they should contact us and give us an idea of how many students they have and when they might be available. We can then assign them to the seniors in most pressing need of help. If they think they might be able to round up some volunteers, they can let us know that even before they have the group totally lined out, so we can get a sense of how many folks we might be able to help.

The Boys & Girls Club of Woburn is offering minigrants to youth-led service projects!

From funding provided by SCI, youth leaders from Boys & Girls Club of Woburn are awarding minigrants of up to $750 for service projects organized and led by youth. To view the application or to apply, please click here. Applications can also be found at the BGCW website or be picked up at the BGC Woburn.

These minigrants can help fund service projects organized and led by youth to improve their community! BGCW will be accepting applications until Feb 27th. A BGCW representative will follow up to schedule an interview after your application is received.

There will be an info session held at BGCW on Jan. 20th at 7pm for any questions.
