The mission of SCI Woburn is to strengthen the community by connecting diverse individuals and organizations through civic engagement initiatives. The SCI Woburn website serves as a community resource connecting residents to volunteer opportunities, community events and resources.

Appliances

Wondering what to do with that old television, computer monitor or appliance that is broken, unwanted or unused and just taking up space?

The Medeiros Crew is working with a Massachusetts company that will collect these items at drop off sites set up throughout Woburn at various times throughout the year. 

This is an excellent opportunity to recycle these items at a minimal cost compared to the higher cost associated with curbside appliance recycling programs and will also be a fundraiser for local organizations that will sponsor these events. Another good thing and possibly the best part of this program is that it is open to residents from any and all communities, not just Woburn, as well as any and all business entities. With your help these collections have raised over $125,000 dollars for local Woburn organizations with a portion always going to the Woburn Highscool Scholarship. 

Council of Social Concern Logo

The Council of Social Concern's Food Pantry  is in dire need of non-perishable food items.This timeThe of the year is usually difficult to keep the Food Pantry shelves full.  

 

In the past, the residents of Woburn and Winchester have helped Social Concern to serve "neighbors in need" by donating food items to the Food Pantry. Once again, Social Concern is asking residents of both Woburn and Winchester to help stock the shelves. With a little help from everyone, they will be able to fill their shelves and ensure that individuals and families have nutritious foods available to them.
