WCC Highlights

Hearts Of Kindness

Now until February 13th
Our community is sponsoring an Act of Kindness project for Valentine’s Day, a “Thank You” to the community from the youth in town. We’d love for you to participate! Any child is invited to write down an Act of Kindness they are committed to for this week, month or more, on the slips and then to place the slip in one of the heart pockets at participating locations. All hearts will be collected and displayed throughout Northbridge and Whitinsville on February 13th. Participating locations are: the Whitin Community Center, the Whitinsville Social Library, the Rockdale Youth Center, Northbridge Elementary School, Balmer School & Northbridge Middle School. We are also looking for volunteers to help us hang up the Hearts throughout the town. If you are interested in participating, please contact Monique Boucher-Adams at 508.234.8184 ext 121 or Monique.Boucher@OurGym.org.
For more info on how you, your town, or youth group can get involved in this annual project, please email Alison Ciccone Dwyer at adwyer@uxbridge.k12.ma.us or Monique Boucher-Adams at Monique.Boucher@OurGym.org. This project began through the Community of Caring program in the Uxbridge Public Schools, and has now spread to the communities of Milford, Franklin, Millbury, and Northbridge, working together to promote the health and wellness of our youth!
This project corresponds with Random Acts of Kindness Week. Check out the foundation’s link for great resources for you, your family, classroom, and youth groups! Research has shown that completing international Acts of Kindness increases happiness. And happy people are physically and emotionally healthier, do better in school or their job, have positive relationships, and are productive members of their community!

Thyroid Awareness Month

January 1st-January 31st
The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped endocrine gland that is normally located in the lower front of the neck. The thyroid’s job is to make thyroid hormones, which are secreted into the blood and then carried to every tissue in the body. Thyroid hormone helps the body use energy, stay warm and keep the brain, heart, muscles, and other organs working as they should. One in 8 women will develop a thyroid disorder in her lifetime, and thyroid disease affects more than 20 million Americans.

Cervical Cancer Awareness Month

January 1st-January 31st
Each year approximately 11,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer in the United States, but this cancer can largely be prevented with regular screenings and preventive care. Please click on this link for more information about human papilloma virus, cervical cancer, screenings tests, what is normal and what to look out for, and prevention.

National Blood Donor Month

January 1st-January 31st
Every January since 1970, the American Red Cross invites donors to start the year off by giving the gift of life, and each year more than 11 million people donate life-giving blood each year. "January is a challenging time for blood donation because cold and snowy weather and busy post-holiday schedules can make it difficult for blood donors to keep appointments. Regardless of the time of year, hospital patients nationwide need about 44,000 blood donations daily for cancer care, surgeries, and the treatment of serious diseases and trauma."
