VJW 08 Elite "Thanks-Giving Back" Event

Last Sunday November 19, the ’08 Elite VJW team held a “Thanks-Giving Back” event at the Haverhill Valley Forum after their morning game.


Each family generously contributed items for “blessing bags” to be distributed to homeless people in Lawrence. 

The boys filled twenty backpacks to the brim with various essentials (e.g., warm socks, gloves, hats, health/personal hygiene items, flashlights, and a variety of snacks).


They also brainstormed and came up with words of encouragement to write on hand-made cards that were included with each bag.

Susan Lauren (the founder of a local non-profit charity called “Blanket Me”) spoke to the boys about her efforts on behalf of the homeless and collected all of the backpacks to distribute to those in need.


They celebrated together over lunch after the bags were complete and donated all of the remaining food to “Blanket Me.”

The event was a huge success and the boys did a fantastic job!  No doubt their efforts will brighten someone’s day.
