Woburn: Building Understanding and Community

Over the years SCI has slowly spread its roots, branching out to what is now nineteen different towns and cities across the Eastern Massachusetts area. It is amazing to see its growth, and even more amazing to see the impact that is has made in countless communities. As SCI creates new partnerships, it never fails to deepen the existing ties that is has created. Woburn is a prominent example of SCI's commitment to building long-lasting partnerships and understanding within a community.

This summer, SCI partnered with the City of Woburn to hold the Woburn Unites Vigil. The vigil was to show support for the city's police officers and ALL members of its community. This interfaith event was planned in the wake of a number of violent acts across the nation. It represented an opportunity for Woburn to come together to support their local police as well as show respect to each and every member of the community, regardless of race, religion, or ethnicity.Read more

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
