Rep-Elect DiZoglio to Host Holiday Jazz Brunch to
Support Local Families in Need

Methuen, MA – State Representative-elect Diana DiZoglio (D-Methuen) invites local residents to join the Methuen Arlington Neighborhood Inc.’s effort to help local families in need this holiday season. DiZoglio will be sponsoring a Holiday Jazz Brunch to raise awareness and support for their “Adopt-A-Family” program. All donations welcome and %100 of the proceeds will go directly to the families in need.

The goal of Methuen Arlington Neighborhood Inc. is to increase and enhance entrepreneurial opportunities, neighborhood investment, revitalization activities, and self-sufficiency of low and moderate income residents of the Methuen Arlington Neighborhood.

“We support low-income, working poor families that otherwise would not have anything under the tree for their children because they are just trying to make ends meet”, said Safe Haven Coordinator Linda Soucy. The Executive Director of the Methuen Arlington Neighborhood, Bill Manzi, points out that the “Adopt-A-Family” program, has sustained great success over the past sixteen years. “We have helped many working/poor families in the neighborhood enjoy their holiday thanks to the unmatched support and generosity from individuals and companies in the community”, said Manzi. “The Adopt-A-Family Program and Holiday Food Basket Delivery are crucial to the families of our neighborhood. These specific programs ensure that financially strapped families in our community are able to enjoy their holiday season, grateful that their children have been provided with food and presents during this stressful time of year. With your help and support, we can continue this great tradition,” said Manzi.

The Holiday Jazz Brunch will be held on Sunday, December 16th, from 11:30am – 2:00pm at Taza Mediterranean Cuisine Restaurant at 169 East Street, Methuen. A buffet style brunch will be served and guests will enjoy a live, jazz performance by Ed Saindon and Billy Novik.

“I spoke with members of the board at Methuen Arlington Neighborhood Inc. to find that the sorts of things on the wish lists for these children are warm winter boots and blankets. I am pleased to host this event and join in the effort to engage our community by providing an opportunity to meet other active residents, listen to live music, and enjoy a great meal to support neighbors in need this holiday season,” said DiZoglio.
