We are a strong, resourceful, and resilient community. Now, more than ever, is the time for us to pull together and care for each other. The Resilient Randolph Fund will mobilize resources to provide emergency assistance to individuals and families impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic.
DONATE NOW TO HELP PEOPLE IN OUR COMMUNITY
The Resilient Randolph Fund will mobilize resources for emergency assistance and expanded food distribution, with a focus on those who are most economically vulnerable during the pandemic. This fund will deploy resources through nonprofit partners to prevent financial crises and displacement for the residents of our town.
As COVID-19 reverberates across hospitals, offices, schools, and homes, many in Randolph are being impacted in ways they never imagined. Businesses who make up the backbone of our local economy have significantly reduced their hours or have been forced to close. People who are not paid if they are not working are trying to figure out how they will make ends meet. This fund was established to mobilize those who can give to do so, generously, in support of their neighbors.
HOW WILL THE RESILIENT RANDOLPH FUND HELP?
These funds will cover the costs of essential needs including, but not limited to, rent, mortgage, food, utilities, medications, and other basic necessities.
At this time, this fund is not intended to support nonprofit capacity. It will rather focus on the basic needs of families. Priority will be given to those who are most economically vulnerable to this crisis. All donations will be collected by United Way and distributed by South Shore Stars and NeighborWorks Housing Solutions, established Randolph nonprofit organizations with a track record of administering assistance funds.
