He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career.

LexRAP Volunteer Opportunity
Tuesday, March 19 – various times

LNN is providing the volunteers for LexRAP’s monthly lunch program “Building Bridges One Meal at a Time”.  LexRAP is a Lexington-based non-profit organization helping refugees to settle in the U.S. and become productive and well-adjusted members of the community.  LexRAP’s monthly meal program offers a healthy meal and gives the refugees an opportunity to practice their English and to connect with one another. 

Volunteers are needed to help prepare the lunch (9-10:45am in Lexington) and go to Lowell to deliver and share the meal (10:45-1pm).  You can volunteer to do both, or just one of those tasks.  This is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community along with your LNN friends!
