Young neighbors helping neighbors
Happy Birthday Jenson!
We would like to extend a very special thank you to Jenson Crisafulli. This young man recently celebrated his seventh birthday and raised $235 for NSC by asking for money instead of presents. His generous donation will support several families with up 2 weeks of food. Great job helping your neighbors Jenson!
Johnson Elementary School first graders
Thank you to Johnson School 1st graders for collecting food for NSC’s food pantry. We appreciate their efforts, generosity and for caring about their neighbors. Way to go, first graders!
Thank you Ryan and Billy!
Ryan Corkery and Billy Tinney visited us last week to drop off items they collected through a food drive. Thank you boys! We appreciate your support, especially during the summer months when food donations decline.
On Friday, June 10, we had the pleasure of hosting nine volunteers from Boston Scientific as part of their corporate wide “Volunteer Day”. They gave employees the opportunity to choose where they would like to work for a day and we had the great fortune of having a wonderful group!
They inventoried our clothing, sorted and cleaned up Harriet’s Closet (NCS’s clothing area), processed the donated food for stocking, made “healthy snack bags” for kids, recycled boxes, moved furniture and more!! We are so grateful to this amazing crew for their time and support!
