Food Drive

Thank you to everyone who donated food, diapers, pet food, cereal and more to A Place to Turn Emergency Food Pantry. We delivered 15 bags of food to assist families dealing with emergency issues and food insecurity. A Place to Turn has been assisting families in the metro west area for many years. In 2021 they served 19,000 individuals, distributed 380,000 pounds of food, and offered over 50,000 personal care items. A Place to Turn is truly an important asset to community and always accept donations. We are happy to support this organization.

Outstanding Volunteerism Awards

On June 13, 2022, we had the opportunity to celebrate the Outstanding Volunteerism of Carolyn Hasgill, Benny Polagruto and Marguerite Sacchetti. Every week these three dedicated members devote countless volunteer hours to the Lodge, their neighborhood, their faith community, and local charities. It was a important to recognize their contributions at our scholarship award ceremony, as our ability to award funds is a direct result of their willingness to serve at the Lodge. They are wonderful role models to the new graduates on the value our individual contributions have on the lives of people around us. Thank you Carolyn, Marguerite and Ben for always saying 'yes' when we need your guidance, perspective, wisdom and encouragement. You are a gift to the Lodge and our community.

T-Shirt Sale!

We are happy to promote our new Lodge t-shirts. They share our pride at being part of the Natick community, and our upcoming centennial anniversary in 2026. Established in 1926, it was important for us to share "Sons & Daughters of Italy", reflecting the change in the National Order Sons and Daughters of Italy. All proceeds from t-shirt sales will be devoted to upgrading our kitchen. As a non-profit, we devote our fundraising to many charities, and of course our scholarship fund, which has awarded over $60,000 since 2014. Click here to order now. Thank you!
