Rolling the dice to help end poverty

Methuen Village hosting Casino Night to benefit Lazarus House

(Continued)

The mission of Lazarus House Ministries is to move individuals and families out of poverty. In July, Methuen Village held a Christmas in July non-perishable food drive for Lazarus House, realizing the need for food is a year-round problem. “The pantries get depleted in summer,” Corey Rahme said.

Next month, Methuen Village management, including Executive Director Gregory Batchelder, is volunteering in the Lazarus House meal center serving dinners.

Methuen Village opened in 2009 at 4 Gleason St., providing assisted living services for seniors and specialized care for elders with memory-related problems. Residents there regularly welcome the public for events, including National Night Out earlier this month. Methuen police and firefighters stopped by the Village to share ice cream with the residents there.

“We’re just another neighborhood in Methuen,” Corey Rahme noted.
