Goenka sisters announce pandemic initiatives

Wellesley sisters Sanah Goenka (grade 6 at WMS) and Sanya Goenka (sophomore at BB&N) would like the community's help in supporting two initiatives they have undertaken during the COVID-19 crisis.

Firstly, a team of students aims to provide free virtual tutoring services to any student that needs help with their school work at the Wellesley Middle and elementary schools. This campaign hopes to help all those students who are facing hardships due to school closures and COVID-19. Those who would like to volunteer their services for tutoring, or sign up for free online lessons, are asked to email

Secondly, the Goenka sisters are asking their neighbors to thank our frontline heroes by donating a meal to MGH, Boston Medical Center and other local hospital healthcare workers and staff. Medical workers are working tirelessly and putting their lives at risk while taking care of patients infected by COVID-19. At the same time, local restaurants are suffering from layoffs and closures due to lockdown. The sisters have contacted several local restaurants who are willing to provide a delicious meal to the healthcare workers at the above hospitals for $10. All donations, big or small, would be greatly appreciated.
