Maynard COVID-19 Relief Fund

The Maynard Community Chest continues to support the work of our nineteen nonprofit agencies serving our neighbors with funding through our regular annual fund drive. We need to come together more now than ever to support our neighbors.

With COVID-19, we are facing an unprecedented public health crisis and our agencies are being called upon to provide additional resources and services to meet the growing needs of their clients. The Maynard Community Chest has set up the Maynard COVID-19 Relief Fund to bring immediate relief to these agencies, allowing them to continue to provide help to our residents.

With many on lockdown and businesses closing, unemployment is at record levels. Feeding families, paying rent and keeping the lights on is tougher for many of us. Providing for our seniors and addressing the growing mental health needs in our community is vitally important to keeping all citizens safe. Your contribution will go directly to the hard-working agencies providing critical services to our neighbors during this challenging time.

The Maynard Community Chest thanks you for your donation to support our member agencies who are working tirelessly to help all of those in need as a result of COVID-19.
