SCI Lynn, in conjunction with Compare Supermarket in Lynn, hosted a food drive on February 13th that helped supplement pantries in the area, collecting 230 canned goods and 26 pounds of pasta, amongst other items. Pictured left to right are Alberto Calvo (owner of Compare Supermarket), Michelle Garcia (Girls Inc’s Part of the Solution member) and GayLynne Samsonoff (SCI AmeriCorps Youth Leadership Coordinator). We would like to thank our donors and everyone who made this event a success including: Alberto Calvo, Mike Kwiatec , GayLynne Samsonoff, LaTosha Duester, Michelle Garcia, Esraa Ahmad, Kathy Lique and Becky and George Richardson.
In addition to this successful food bank collection, Girls Inc. of Lynn recently hosted a bake sale, collecting $497 for earthquake victims in Haiti. This money was sent directly to Yele Haiti, an organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for those living in Haiti.
