Volunteers serve homeless in Fitchburg

FITCHBURG — Members and volunteers of the Boys & Girls Club of Fitchburg and Leominster, along with employee volunteers from IC Federal Credit Union and Slattery’s Restaurant of Fitchburg, came together Tuesday to provide a fresh-cooked meal for neighbors in need.

“Homeless families living in shelters and hotels don’t typically have access to a kitchen in which they can cook a nice hot meal for their loved ones,” said Tony Emerson, president and CEO of IC. “We were humbled to be able to provide that, as well as an area for the kids to run around and enjoy the playground for a little while.”

The evening was held at the Boys & Girls Club on Lindell Avenue in Leominster. For more information on how you can help or donate food, clothing and other much-needed supplies, contact St. Mark’s Church of Leominster at 978-537-3560, or the Boys & Girls Club at 978-534-8358.
