SCI is currently seeking volunteers of all ages for our ongoing project Woburn Volunteers for Seniors. This project matches handicapped and isolated seniors with local volunteers, who will assist them with snow shoveling. It's a great chance for students to earn some service hours as well as for families to volunteer together, especially as there are currently over 50 seniors in our community who are requesting our help this year.
