Looking for a volunteer opprotunity?

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.
