Woburn Youth Council Making a Positive Impact at the Dwelling Place
Most teens look forward to the weekends as a time to relax and hang out with friends after a busy week of doing school work. But the teens at the Woburn Youth Council decided to spend their weekend differently by volunteering at a local soup kitchen called the Dwelling Place located at the United Methodist Church in Woburn.
On Saturday, September 29, the Woburn Youth Council helped cook and serve 20 people spaghetti and meatballs, salad, coffee, milk, and ice cream sandwiches. Pictured are Bryan Filardo, Rachael Wells (middle), and Jackie Kelley who served dinner to patrons. Not included in the picture are Joe Filardo who also volunteered and Michael Gorrasi and Yekatrina Filippova from the Boys and Girls Club of Woburn who supervised the teens along with another volunteer from the church.
The Woburn Youth Council is very active in the community and this is only one example of how they make a difference regularly. SCI would like to recognize them as our Social Capitalists of the Month!
