The Labouré Center in South Boston has been providing valuable family services to the neighborhood since 1907!  On Thursday, April 27th, from 5:30pm-8:30pm, the Labouré Spring Reception will take place at The Exchange, 212 Northern Ave., and it’s a great way to show your support to this amazing organization.

This year, the Jack Shaughnessy Service Award Honoree is none other than Southie’s own Tom Tinlin!

Within and beyond South Boston, Tom has been instrumental in the success of countless programs and projects that have enriched the lives of others. In South Boston sports, Tom coached girls’ soccer and was one of the founders of the South Boston Girls’ Softball League. He has previously sat on the Board of the South Boston Neighborhood House. Appointed by Governor Charlie Baker, Tommy presently is a member of the Board of The Children’s Trust, whose mission is to end child abuse in the Commonwealth.

Appointed by Mayor Martin Walsh, Tom serves on the Board of Zoo New England, which oversees the Stone and Franklin Park Zoos. Tom has been President, Clerk and is presently Treasurer of the Board of Directors for the City of Boston Credit Union. Whenever there is a local “time” you’re likely to see Tom there! He volunteers for the St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast, Annual South Boston Street Festival, and Boston Collegiate Charter School (his children’s alma mater). Tom has graciously hosted and served as auctioneer for many local fundraisers, including the Catholic Charities Laboure Center Spring Reception as well as SBNH, Fourth Presbyterian Church, Boston Irish Honors, and Colin’s Joy Project.

Tom and his wife Heather are lifelong South Bostonians who have raised two wonderful children, Thomas and Grace, in whom they have instilled a love for their neighborhood and city. Tom grew up in a household where his parents exemplified and taught him the importance of loyalty and giving back.  These early values went on to shape Tom’s life.
