On May 5, we are participating in #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of generosity to provide relief during the pandemic. Let's rally for our neighbors - hairdressers, Uber drivers, restaurant and retail workers and so many others who never imagined they'd need financial support.

Our COVID-19 Impact Fund has raised $140,000 in one month. We are closely working together with our town social workers to bring relief to individuals and families in need with $1,000 emergency grants. On #GivingTuesdayNow, we hope to raise $30,000 as we anticipate that this crisis will harshly impact hundreds of cash-strapped Acton and Boxborough families and individuals for months to come. Your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $15,000 thanks to the Orange Door Fund.

What can you do to help? Donate to #GivingTuesdayNow and spread the word to strengthen community solidarity. Your generosity is deeply appreciated. We're in it together!
