NEWTON COVID-19 CARE FUND
The Mayor’s Office announced the launch of the Newton COVID-19 Care Fund. Its focus is on basic needs and critical services. The funds will help pay for rent, food, utilities, internet connectivity for families with school-aged children, childcare, medications and other basic needs.
HOW CAN I GIVE TO THE NEWTON COVID-19 CARE FUND?
You can give to the fund by clicking the GIVE button on the United Way Mass Bay site or by following the Newton COVID-19. All gifts are tax-deductible and 100% of the proceeds (net credit card fees) will go to individuals seeking assistance. You may also give via your Donor Advised Fund by including “The United Way Newton COVID-19 Care Fund” in your recommendation details. Our tax ID number is 04-2382233.
You can also send a check to the following address: United Way of Massachusetts Bay, PO Box 51381, Boston, MA 02205-1381. Please include “Newton Covid-19 Care Fund” in the memo of your check.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I NEED ASSISTANCE?
The Newton COVID-19 Care Fund is a coalition of Newton-based care providers coming together to serve those who are in need in the face of the COVID-19 crisis. In the coming days, visit the United Way web page (here) for more detailed information on fund eligibility requirements and information about how to submit your application. Until next week, if you need immediate help, please contact United Way’s 2-1-1 helpline.
