Mayor Fuller today announced the launch of the Newton COVID-19 Care Fund, established by Newton community leaders in partnership with United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley.
The campaign will help families and individuals who have been financially impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. All donations will be collected by United Way and distributed by an established Newton nonprofit organization with a track record of administering assistance funds. These funds will pay for rent, food, utilities, internet connectivity for families with school-aged children, childcare, medications and other basic needs. City of Newton First Responders who incur new childcare expenses or other expenses as a result of the crisis will also be eligible.
