TEENS RALLY TO PAINT, PLANT & BUILD FOR HOMELESS SHELTER
More than 85 teenagers from across the North Shore joined forces on a recent Sunday to paint, plant, build and cook at the Lynn Shelter Association.
“It feels good to help homeless families right here on the North Shore because they don’t live too far from us and we are fortunate enough to be able to afford a home and other necessities, like food, but many of these people cannot,” said Mason Quintero, 17, of Marblehead.
Quintero helped organize landscaping at the Lynn Shelter Association campus. The annual day of service, called J-Serve, was organized by Jewish Teen Initiative (formerly North Shore Teen Initiative), a Marblehead-based non-profit. In addition to the teens, more than 25 adults also came out to help.
