SCI Social Capitalist Luncheon

From date: 
Thu, 04/02/2015 - 11:30am

The 2015 SCI Social Capitalist Luncheon will take place on Thursday, April 2, 2015 at the Sheraton Boston Hotel. At this event, we will have the pleasure of honoring our 2015 SCI Idealists: Benjamin Zander, conductor of The Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, and Eric Schwarz, co-founder of Citizen Schools and the Executive Chairman of US2020. We will also be honoring a group of outstanding and inspirational Community Social Capitalists.

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.
