SCI is looking for volunteers!

SNOW

SCI is currently seeking volunteers of all ages to help local Woburn seniors in the upcoming fall and winter seasons. The project intends to match isolated and handicapped seniors with local volunteers to assist them with outdoor chore activities, such as snow shoveling and leaf removal. By collaborating with the Woburn Senior Center and the Woburn Council on Aging, SCI hopes to engage community members to aid and support their local senior citizens!

As the winter season quickly approaches, SCI will be working with the Woburn Senior Center to implement this program again. We are looking for volunteers of all ages who would be interested in helping! This is a great way to get involved in the community, meet local seniors, and also earn Y.E.S. hours! If you're interested in participating, or have any further questions, please contact mobrien@socialcapitalinc.org.
