Social Capital Inc. (SCI), a nonprofit organization based in Woburn, is currently seeking volunteers for their newest project, Woburn Volunteers for Seniors. This project will match isolated and handicapped seniors with local volunteers, who will assist them in various outdoor chores such as snow shoveling and leaf removal. Volunteers will also be on call in case of sudden, heavy snowfall that, without assistance, could leave many seniors homebound. SCI will collaborate with the Woburn Senior Center and the Woburn Council on Aging for the project.Read more
