The Acton Food Pantry has served clients from Acton, Boxborough, and surrounding towns for 25 years. Because of the COVID-19 crisis, food insecurity in Eastern Massachusetts is expected to rise to 59 percent, and the Pantry has opened its doors to anyone in need. Your support will help the organization distribute weekly groceries to families throughout the region, including meats, produce, staples, and even diapers. To learn moreclick here.
 
The Domestic Violence Services Network works with local courts and agencies to help end the cycle of domestic violence by providing support, advocacy, and resources to victims. Referrals have increased by more than 30 percent during the COVID-19 pandemic, as many victims have been confined to homes with abusive partners. The Services Network addresses this vulnerable population’s need for food, housing, and income. To learn moreclick here.
