Youth Council volunteering

On Tuesday, December 11, Woburn Youth Council members volunteered at a NuPath residential facility in Wilmington. This facility houses five men with high functioning autism. Members of the council and the residents put together photo frames decorated with holiday motifs for their families.

The members were supervised by NuPath staff and SCI AmeriCorps members Yekaterina Fillippova, Ashley Napear, and Leigh Wilmot, who coordinated this volunteer opportunity. Yekaterina and Ashley are Youth Leadership Coordinators at the Boys and Girls Club and Leigh Wilmot is an Outreach and Technology Coordinator at NuPath Inc.

Holiday House tour

At SCI, we have been getting several questions about when we will doing our much anticipated Holiday House Tours. In the past, these tours have allowed residents to tour some of the most interesting and festively decorated homes in Woburn. Always a good time, these tours provide a wonderful opportunity to get into the holiday spirit and enjoy the company of new and old friends alike. 

Because SCI enjoys putting these Holiday House Tours together so much, we have decided to do them every other year as a way to keep the interest renewed in the event and to give us time to find new houses to add to the tours. If you are interested in joining the committee for next year's holiday season to help us find houses, please contact Karen Rice at (781) 935-2244.

Holiday Wishes Donation Drive

Help a local child in need this holiday season with the Holiday Wishes donation drive at the North Suburban YMCA. You can really make a difference in making a child's wish come true.

All you need to do is come to the Y and pick a star off of the wall with a requested item written on it.

Then bring the unwrapped gifts to the Welcome Center by Tuesday, December 18 at 6pm with the star tag attached. There are still about six stars left! The YMCA will still accept gifts until Thursday for late drop-offs.

For more information, please contact the Y at (781) 935-3270.
