Burlington’s acts of kindness make a big impact in troubled times

Wicked Local Burlington: Judy Wasserman

HELPIS, founded in 2012 by Burlington resident Joyce Deliyiannis to promote and encourage kind and charitable deeds, is also seeing increased need. Board member Karen Meyers said “There are significantly more requests for food, diapers, wipes, and baby formula,” and many requests from medical facilities for masks, gloves and other safety equipment.


Meyers said they recently delivered hundreds of boxes of medical supplies, toilet paper, paper towels, and snacks to Boston Health Care for the Homeless.
