It is up to each of us to keep our community safe and strong as we spend some time #alonetogether. If you have elderly neighbors that you have not seen recently, please give them a call to make sure they have everything they need. They might be too proud or private to ask for help, or they may not know that help is available. Please call the Senior Center at 781-438-1157 Monday – Friday if a senior that you know is in need of help during this time. We can provide a box of household essentials, and referrals to other services they may need.
