Second Saturday

One of our favorite ways to give back to the community is participating in Second Saturday. Grace Baptist Church in Hudson (map) organizes this monthly volunteer event, which features a bounty of jobs to meet the needs of local residents and non-profits. For the past several years, club members have showed up bright and early, often times bringing along friends and family, and pitched in to serve those in need. Some club members are leaders of regularly scheduled volunteer jobs, while others enjoy choosing from the variety of evolving tasks that help the elderly,

Second Saturday – Convoy of Hope

The good news is you don’t have to choose between volunteering at Second Saturday and volunteering at the Convoy of Hope on Saturday October 12th! ALL the Second Saturday jobs will involve serving at the Convoy of Hope in Stevens Park, Marlborough.

Flags For Our Forces

From our Salvation Army contact: We have an exciting program we are rolling out in the Marlborough and Gardner areas called “Flags for Our Forces” a fundraising program designed to specifically address the economic needs of the US Military (Veterans and families of deployed soldiers). Our goal is to raise money to help with rent, utility bills, food, clothing and other basic necessities of life. We recognize we cannot solve all of the issues, but we do know together we can help.

For each $20 donation received in the “FLAGS FOR OUR FORCES” fund raiser,

MJWC teams up with the City of Marlborough for the White Ribbon Campaign

Marlborough Mayor Arthur Vigeant and City Councilor (and MJWC member and past-president) Katie Robey held a press conference this morning to recognize “White Ribbon Day” in the City of Marlborough and across Massachusetts.

Massachusetts White Ribbon Day is connected with an international campaign called The White Ribbon Campaign. The White Ribbon Campaign was created by a handful of Canadian men in 1991 on the second anniversary of one man’s massacre of fourteen women in Montreal. They began the White Ribbon Campaign to urge men to speak out against violence against women.
