Communiteen Clothing Drive Ongoing Through December 14

This winter, Middle School students are lending a helping hand to others less fortunate than them. As part of the after school club CommuniTeen, students helped organize a clothing drive to collect new or gently used winter apparel for families in need. Clothes collected from the drive will go to support Project Just Because's "Keep a Family Warm Project". The drive will be ongoing until December 14th and items can be dropped off in the collection box located in the main lobby at the Middle School.

With about 20 members in the club, the goal of CommuniTeen is to give students a chance to make a difference, not only in Hopkinton, but throughout the world. During meetings, students discuss ideas of how they can help the community as well as promote ongoing fundraisers. And it's the idea of giving back that resonates with the students.

Each month, CommuniTeen works on a new project. They recently organized a fundraiser which raised over $700 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. And currently, the club is brainstorming ideas for how to participate in the annual MLK Day of Giving Back.

Veterans Breakfast Needs Sponsors

On the first Friday of every month, local veterans gather at the Senior Center for the Vets Breakfast. Typically, the event is sponsored by a person or organization. And for the past few years, there has been a sponsor for almost every breakfast. However currently, the Senior Center has no sponsors for any breakfasts going forward, including this month's event. The December breakfast falls on the 7th, which also marks the 71st anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

To sponsor this special breakfast, or any other one going forward, contact Assistant Director Sally Almy at 508-497-9730 or at sallya@hopkintonma.gov. The cost to sponsor a breakfast is $120. Breakfasts can also be co-sponsored in order to split the cost. .
