Clothing and Food Drive for Local Homeless Families

Just before the holidays, nearly 40 families were moved into hotels in the Marlborough area as part of the state’s program to move families into hotels as shelters in the Boston area have filled up.  Read more about in this Community Advocate article.

MJWC member Katherine Hennessy jumped into action first organizing a coat drive followed by a non-perishable food drive. Friends, family and Juniors dropped off coats, gloves, hats, boots and mittens to Katherine’s house. Overall, there were donations of over 40 coats, 5 pairs of boots, multiple sets of hats & mittens, scarves, etc.

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.

Although this event is organized by faith-based groups, dozens of human services groups will be there with the goal of providing support to people who could use a helping hand, whether due to poverty or other needs. Attendees will be treated to lunch, receive free haircuts, bags of groceries,

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,
