Thank you, Jordan Washington

We would like to thank Jordan Washington, Project
351 Ambassador and Vice President of the Class of
2018 for sponsoring a Project 251 food drive.  
Through his efforts he collected 61 lbs of donations!

Project 351 celebrates the power of young people
as a force for positive change in their communities
and our Commonwealth.  Through service,
leadership development, enrichment, and
friendship with a statewide community of peers,
Ambassadors build skills and confidence, explore
issues, embrace leadership, and motivate lifetime of
service.

We would like to thank Barbara Roy (knitted 100
hats!), Elaine D'Alfonso (knitted 35 hats!), Susan
Baghdasarian, Clara Holding, and Florence

children served by our food pantry.  This is a
wonderful way that local residents share their
talents while making sure our kids are warm this
winter.  Thank you knitters for your hard work and
commitment to making sure there were enough for
all our kids.

Donated Time

We would like to thank

completely seamless. Yet
