Chelmsford Sai Center Delivers

Rajib from the Chelmsford Sai Center stopped by this morning to drop off much needed diapers, deodorant, and body wash. These were items that we were in fear of running out of this week. These amazing community partners reached out and asked how they could help. We are so thankful for their continued support.
