Community Service

Hats off to Dino Tsiotos and Lillibeth Morales for volunteering to help others!

Dino spent Thanksgiving morning at Brother's Deli in Lynn preparing and handing out Thanksgiving meals for people in need.

Lillibeth organized a "Coats for Kids" drive at WHS and collected three large bags full of coats that will be professionally cleaned and given to people in need.

Thanks for your hard work!
