LITTLETON — Recently, more than 11 men from the Congregational Church of Littleton gathered to build an outdoor shelter for the boys at the Littleton Group Home.

Led by Church members Frank Woolley of Ayer and Kirby Dolak of Littleton, the men, along with boys from the Group Home, built a shelter next to a basketball court. Church members and friends who helped in this outreach include Wayne LaSante, Sam Bell, Steve Converse, Stan Felton, Dave Gehly, Art Lazarus, Pete Scantlebury, Ray Streeter and Warren Terrell. The purpose of the shelter is to provide some protection from sun and rain for staff members when the boys want to play sports outdoors in less than “ideal” weather.

“It was great to see the boys concerned about something beyond themselves,” said Sheila Stewart, staff member from the home who coordinated the event. Already the boys are asking about the next project they can do together, according to Stewart.
