Young student helps with Thanksgiving baskets

Table of Contents

By Charlene Band

Winchester resident Katherine Mucci, an elementary school student, has been busy helping to purchase food supplies for the Rotary Club of Winchester. Why does the Rotary Club need food supplies? It’s for the Thanksgiving Holiday Basket service project for the Council of Social Concern. Katherine is well aware that this year there has been a 25% increase in the number of families in need of assistance. Please help Katherine stock the shelves.

 The Council serves both Winchester and Woburn families. If you would like to participate in this worthy cause, it could be as simple as dropping off nonperishable food at the En Ka Exchange located at 1037 Main Street. Of you may want to fill your own basket. If so, please contact Paula Matthews (paula@socialconcern.org), the Council of Social Concern Food Pantry Director for a donation list. Your generosity will greatly help to fill 420 Holiday Baskets.
