Volunteer Spotlight: Rockland Trust


It's All in the Family at Rockland Trust, whose staff joined us throughout the summer
to help prepare an unprecedented number of students for the start of the school year.

Many thanks to fourteen energetic groups (86 volunteers) of Rocklanders, who arrived weekly this summer
with big smiles - and children and pups in tow - to donate school supplies, customize backpacks
and keep up with the checks and balances of our inventory! 

It was a great opportunity to meet the people who stand behind the motto,
"Where Each Relationship Matters." 

Thank you for paying forward the gift of education - and ensuring that all
students arrive at school feeling valued, prepared and ready for success!

Finding Magic with Tutor Deb Beaton


“You can find magic wherever you look. 
Sit back and relax, all you need is a book!”

Some days are just hard.  Days when you simply need that touch of magic described above by Dr. Seuss.

Yesterday Rosie* arrived at her tutoring session - and at the sight of her volunteer tutor Deb - began an inconsolable, tear-filled accounting of her day at school.

With her backpack flung absentmindedly over her shoulder, Rosie just slumped and it was clear to Deb that tackling homework wasn’t a first priority. 

First Deb listened; and then they talked. 

Then they read a book. 

Thank you to all of our volunteer tutors, who donate time and magic to students,

who sometimes just need a shoulder to lean on.

Patriot's Day Service!


Girl Scout Troop 82350 from Foxboro, MA
began their school vacation by spending the day helping others.

The Troop recently won the Partners in Patriotism award and used the award money
to purchase school supplies for peers facing homelessness and poverty.

During their stay, they tuned into the Boston Marathon to cheer on the runners!
