I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to everyone who made a donation to the Foundation for MetroWest's Annual F
und. We are happy to have ended the year strong, and that 100% of the funds raised in December will directly support our community in 2019. A
special thank you to those who made new and increased donations in response to the challenge. With your support, we were able to achieve our goal and award $
50,000 in additional funds to
organizations providing emergency services in MetroWest
This has proven to be a most needed source of funding during the federal government shutdown, combining the uncertainty of promised federal funding with an increased demand for services in our region.
We have seen an amazing outpouring of support from our communities. Local food pantries have stepped in to help. Utility companies have asked affected employees to be in touch in order to assist them with challenges. Banks and credit card companies have offered their support. It has been inspiring to see our neighbors coming together to care for one another in this time of uncertainty.
If you or someone you know has been affected by the shutdown and are in need of services, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Foundation, so that we can connect you with one of the many organizations in our area that may be able to assist you until this situation is resolved. And thank you to the all the incredible nonprofits on the front lines serving furloughed federal employees and others who are impacted by this shutdown. You have stepped forward, yet again, to help people in a time of need.
Thank you for your support,
