Woburn Council of Social Concern, Inc.
November 26, 2012

The Council for Social Concern in Woburn works with many groups to offer support with dignity to families in many communities who find themselves in need. I am involved in providing opportunities for giving to a number of groups and organizations and have been for over 20 years. The dedication of staff is evidenced by their longevity - people love to work for and with this non-profit.

Review from JustGive
Extras for Creative Learning Inc
September 25, 2012

As a program manager, the resources available to me from Extras for Creative Learning were cost saving and mission serving. Staff used supplies that were recovered scraps or waste from industry that might have otherwise ended up in a landfill. Lengths cut from the mylar roll ends were especially valuable for making kaleidoscopes and saved a lot of money sourcing shiny flexible material. Staff at Extras are dedicated to repurposing industry leftovers for the benefit of those with limited resources.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

ways I never expected! I have sourced some great products for Extras, offering 3 gallon plastic buckets with lids at no cost, and saving the corporate donor the cost of having them carted away as waste.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Partner with one of the Business Schools and invest in developing an internship program for students in business, science education, or other related field.
