The PTO is excited to announce that Lilja will again be helping the Natick Service Council by sponsoring Natick families in need this Thanksgiving. NSC distributes Thanksgiving meals to over 200 Natick families per year. For over a decade, each classroom at Lilja School donated the ingredients for a Thanksgiving meal and has provided twenty full turkey dinners to the Natick Service Council (NSC). Please visit the PTO website for more details on how to support this cause.
