Below is a press release from the Wilmington Sons of Italy:
WILMINGTON, MA — At the Wilmington Sons of Italy June Council Meeting via ZOOM, Michele Caira Nortonen provided an update on her committee’s progress in delivering meals to first responders and essential workers in Wilmington. She thanked her core committee members: Janet and Kevin Engrem, Cheryl and Kevin Caira, Alicia Johnson, Julie Sbraccia-Manos, Karen Scalzi and John Romano; and gave a shout out to Brent Johnson, Laura Caira, Janelle Engrem, and Lennie Malvone, who stepped in to volunteer when needed.
On May 23rd, meals were delivered to all three nursing shifts at AdviniaCare on West Street, and a week later duplicate meals were delivered to the three shifts at CareOne on Woburn Street. The meals consisted of mini-subs prepared by Lucci’s deli, pizzas by AJ’s Kitchen, garden salad, potato chips, a variety of chocolate chip, macadamia chip and fudge chip cookies, and water.
The following week on June 3rd, meals similar to those brought to the two long term care facilities were delivered to the police. Chief Joseph Desmond, Deputy Chief Brian Pupa ( a member of the Wilmington Lodge ), Patrolman Scott Dunnett, Clerk Dawn Naimo, Lt. David Sugrue, and Officer Kevin Cavanaugh were on hand to gratefully accept the platters of food and thank the members of our lodge for their generosity and continued support.
On June 12th, the committee delivered platters of mini-subs and wraps prepared by Lucci’s deli and assorted goodies to the 37 employees manning Town Hall, including the Veterans Department and the Senior Center. Town Manager Jeffrey Hull and employees from his office, Treasurer’s Office, Town Clerk’s Office, Recreation Department, and Engineering Department greeted the committee at the front door and expressed their enthusiastic appreciation to lodge members for the delicious looking lunch.
Three more town departments will be treated in the coming weeks: breakfast prepared by As Good As It Gets Cafe for the Public Buildings Department, a hot lunch for the Department of Public Works, and a variety of sandwiches and wraps for the Fire Department.
