Newton Community Pride Assists Newton Neighbors Helping Neighbors
One of the pillars of NCP's mission is promoting volunteerism and service in our community. On the one year anniversary of Newton Neighbors Helping Neighbors and their partner project, Welcoming Newton, Newton Community Pride is happy to have the opportunity to assist these two service organizations in their growth as a new consolidated non-profit in our community. 

"Both groups of volunteers have done so much this past year for so many of our residents. We wish them well and support their collective mission of volunteerism and service in our city.” stated Gloria Gavris, NCP Board Chair.  

According to Martha Bixby, one of the organization’s leaders, “we are grateful to Newton Community Pride for their fiscal sponsorship, and to all the amazing organizations in Newton that have built such a thriving culture of community care in our city.” 

Since March 2020, 4,500 people have joined NNHN. These volunteers have participated in countless porch drives, delivered thousands of bags of food, raised funds for individuals and families, rallied around small businesses and supported the work of local organizations and partners.
