Marlborough – Immaculate Conception Parish and School were recently honored at the United Way Tri-County Breakfast Awards Ceremony held at the Sheraton Hotel in Framingham. Both the parish and the school were nominated by Marlborough Community Services, a Tri-County United Way agency.

The “Good Neighbor Food Security” awards recognize the amazing generosity of the school and parish communities in providing food whenever asked to do so throughout the year in addition to providing Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter dinners for hundreds of local families. During Advent, the school and parish adopted more than 500 children and purchased winter clothing, toys, bicycles, books, games and gift cards to ensure that no child would be forgotten at Christmas time.

“We were humbled to learn that we were the only school and the only parish to receive these awards and are proud to accept them on behalf of each and every one of our parishioners and school families whose generosity and compassion for the poor witness to the Gospel message so vibrantly,” said School Principal Martha McCook.
