Volunteers Help Brighten Valentine's Days for Adults, Children in Local Shelters
Each year the Sudbury Wayland Lincoln Domestic Violence Roundtable sponsors a Valentine’s Day gift bag drive to help make the day a little brighter for adults and children in local shelters.
The Roundtable reaches out to many different communities for help. This year members from the League of Women Voters of Sudbury and Acton, students from Montserrat College of Art, swimmers at Atkinson Pool in Sudbury, members of the Council on Aging in Lincoln, a knitting group in Weston, parents and staff members of Sudbury Extended Day and local residents all helped by donating items for the gift bags. This year the 75 gift bags were especially festive, thanks to the kindergarten students at Sudbury’s Extended Day program.
If you are interested to hear about how the community addresses domestic violence, you are invited to attend the monthly public meetings held on the second Tuesday of every month, September through June, at 3 p.m. in the Wayland Public Safety Building at the intersection of Route 20 and Route 27 in Wayland. There are no attendance fees and no dues. More information is available at domesticviolenceroundtable.org.
