This is the time when we should turn our attention to the less fortunate among us. We as an organization, as a community, have all pulled together to work as one, for the betterment, care and well-being of our entire Wakefield community. The
Wakefield Lynnfield Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Wakefield have come together to help its neighbors by launching
Wakefield Cards for the Community – Helping our Neighbors in Need
, a gift card giving program. With the closing of schools and the loss of jobs, many Wakefield residents are struggling to be able to provide food for themselves and their families during this global pandemic, COVID-19.
How it works:
Wakefield Cards for the Community
, you will provide us with the funding to purchase gift cards from restaurants that are being affected by Covid-19.
The Board of Directors of the Wakefield Food Pantry and the office of Wakefield School Superintendent will identify individuals and families in need and will distribute the gift cards. To date we have raised over $15,000 and have already purchased more than $8,000 in gift certificates to our local restaurants.
There is still much more we can do and will do! If you haven’t already, please join us in this very worthy and honorable cause. Join us in extending a helping hand (figuratively in these times) to assist those who may be less fortunate. As the song lyrics go “Put a little Love in your heart” and join with us.
Stay safe and healthy,
