NEW: United Way Announces Community Support Fund

Thursday, December 06, 2012

 

The United Way of Central Massachusetts is asking residents to give the gift of fuel, food, and shelter to a local family.

With more than 1 in 4 children in Worcester living below the poverty line and the average age of a homeless person in Central Mass at 8 years old, the United Way of Central Massachusetts asks you to please remember that many people within the community struggle to meet their basic needs during the winter holiday season.

"We need your help to ensure that every family has heat, food on the table, and a roof over their heads this winter, " said the organization.

"We ask you to please consider making a one-time, end-of-the-year donation to the Community Support Fund, a fund designated to meet immediate needs in the areas of food, fuel, and housing."

Through contributions received from individuals, corporations, and foundations in Central Mass, the United Way of Central Massachusetts provides resources to a number of programs at local partner agencies throughout the year. During the winter months, however, additional resources are needed to meet the increased and immediate demand for food, fuel, and shelter.

"Working together, we can ensure that all of our neighbors are healthy, safe, and warm this winter!"

Focused on connecting people and resources to improve the community, United Way funds programs serving people in 30 cities and towns in Central Massachusetts (including Auburn, Barre, Boylston, Brookfield, Douglas, East Brookfield, East Douglas, Grafton, Holden, Hubbardston, Leicester, Millbury, New Braintree, Northbridge, North Brookfield, Northborough, Oakham, Oxford, Paxton, Princeton, Rutland, Shrewsbury, Spencer, Sterling, Sutton, Upton, Uxbridge, West Boylston, West Brookfield and Worcester.) United Way ensures that the most vulnerable among us have a safety net for stabilization today, while working to break the cycle of poverty for the next generation by focusing on the building blocks for a good life: Education, Family Stability, and Health.
