#WoburnStrong Throwback Thursday

Today the #WoburnStrong campaign has a Throwback Thursday. Here’s our take on the popular social media theme:

Share a photo here, and elsewhere on social media, that shows a good memory of something in Woburn that you look forward to getting back to. This might be having a meal at a local restaurant or visiting another local business you miss. Or maybe it is a special community event, school or other organization that isn’t operating as usual now.

When you share elsewhere on social media, be sure to use the #WoburnStrong tag along with #TBT so we can find it! And tag the WoburnStrong Giving Campaign when you share elsewhere on Facebook.

4 Pillars of Success

This week, on Wednesday, May 6 , Jennifer Mack, M. Ed, presented 4 Pillars of Success: Thriving During These Uncertain Times of Quarantine and Remote Learning. Jennifer has been in education for over 17 years and is a MA certified elementary teacher for grades 1-6.  She provides personalized academic support to students based on each child's needs and learning style.  Through work with teachers, parents and students Jennifer's goal is to help students feel confident in themselves and their abilities and to help parents, guardians and teachers learn how to best support their students throughout their academic career. You can watch a Video of this program below. 

The Woburn Parent's Network, a collaboration between Woburn Public Schools, SCI and the James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club, was just launched two weeks ago with a great presentation by Jen Mahon on setting up family routines.  Last week John Mattleman presented on mental health issues affecting our kids during quarantine.  The goal of the WPN is to create a support group of parents in Woburn who can lean on each other in good times and crazy pandemic times alike.  Eventually, WPN will have in person events and meetings to build more camaraderie within the group.  For now, WPN will host Zoom presentations on topics that will hopefully help us all grow though this difficult time rather than just "get through" it.  

This program from the Woburn Parent Network is funded through CHNA 15 DoN funds from Lahey Hospital and Medical Center, coordinated by SCI in partnership with Woburn Public Schools and the James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn.

Today we kick off the #WoburnStrong Giving Tuesday Now campaign!

Each day will have a theme that helps us focus on ways we can support local nonprofits and businesses, and help our neighbors. Of course, don’t feel limited by our themes-- get creative and be sure to tag the WoburnStrong event here, and use the #WoburnStrong hashtag so we can see how you are helping out!

To start things off, today we will focus on how your charitable donation to one or more local nonprofits can make a huge difference.

Our local nonprofit organizations have been stepping up big time to meet emerging needs we face with COVID-19. In addition to the major challenges to the health system, the pandemic creates major social and economic needs that nonprofits are addressing.

At the same time, economic conditions make it hard for organizations to raise funds. So any amount you give to a local charity through this campaign will be making a big difference.

Throughout the day today, we will share information and links about local Woburn organizations with active fundraising needs that you can support. But don’t wait for us, feel free to share about a local cause you know that is raising funds.

When you do make a donation today or throughout the week, please tag #WoburnStrong so we can know about it!
