COVID-19 Impact Fund

COVID-19 has rapidly turned into an unprecedented crisis for many local residents in Acton and Boxborough. People with limited financial resources and limited support systems cannot navigate this crisis alone. Laid-off workers, families, self-quarantined residents and our seniors need your support now.

Because of COVID-19, there are people who need help today who have never needed help before. All proceeds from the COVID-19 Impact Fund will be allocated as emergency grants for residents in need and direct service agencies such as food pantries.

Every donation by residents will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $25,000 thanks to the generous support of an Acton-Boxborough United Way board member.
