The Capone Family recently honored the late Dorothy Martin Long in recognition and appreciation of her advocacy on behalf of Housing Families GREAT Youth and Families Program in Malden.
Housing Families assists children experiencing educational challenges created by housing instability to receive homework and tutoring help. Mrs. Long was a steadfast supporter of the Program.
Dorothy volunteered as a tutor for over 16 years. She was well known in Everett for her community service, her boundless energy, and her commitment to helping others.
Zachary Capone volunteered as a tutor for three years, while a student at Malden Catholic, and had the good fortune to know Dottie as a friend and mentor.
“Dottie was one of the nicest people we have ever met. We can’t remember a time in Everett when she wasn’t serving on a committee or volunteering her time. She was generous of her spirit and a great friend to Zach. We thought the best way for our family to honor Dottie was to donate to the GREAT Youth and Families Program in her memory. The Program provides much-needed services to families in crisis and works diligently to help students achieve their individual academic goals through weekly tutoring.
We miss Dottie and pray for her family. This is our way to thank her and pay it forward to help others.” stated Michele and Fred Capone.
