Dear Lilja Families,
I just wanted to say a heartfelt THANK YOU to all who made donations and volunteered to help with the Thanksgiving Drive this year. Over the last two weeks, and especially Tuesday morning, Lilja families and their diligent room parents all came together and we were able to deliver 24 meals to the Natick Service Council! This is my favorite event that Lilja participates in, not only because it is a wonderful way to teach our students what it means to be part of a community that helps families in need, but because I get to be a part of a group of incredible volunteers who really stepped up and accomplished an amazing feat of delivering all those meals by 9:15am Tuesday morning. I am so grateful to be a part of the Lilja Community!
Thank you and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
