    With more than 1 million people in our state facing food insecurity, a tidal wave of evictions on the horizon and unemployment skyrocketing across most industries, it’s up to our community to make sure none of our neighbors fall through the cracks. To paint the picture, here are some quick stats on what our communities are facing:

    • Unemployment has skyrocketed with 330,000 people jobless in Massachusetts.
    • 1 in 8 residents and 25% of Black and Latinx residents are experiencing food insecurity.
    • 60,000+ families are at risk of eviction because of the unprecedented numbers of renters and homeowners falling behind on their payments.
    • More than 270 childcare centers have been forced to close, leaving 46,000 children without licensed programs.
    • 59% of afterschool providers are unsure if their programs will be able to reopen after the pandemic.

    United Way is tackling these crises head-on and we hope you’ll stand with us as we fight for the housing, success and dignity of everyone in our community. This year your donation goes twice as far with Eversource matching every dollar. Together, we can make sure all of our neighbors have what it takes to make it through and emerge stronger and more resilient - no matter what the future holds.

    Here’s what your dollars do:

    • $50 provides a student with lunches for a week
    • $100 provides groceries for a high-risk family who can’t get out to the store
    • $200 provides transportation for 2 essential workers now that MBTA is hardly running
    • $500 provides rental assistance to a family facing potential eviction

    Thanks for standing with us.
