The Vulnerable Families of Waltham Need You. 

 Thanks to our generous campaign sponsor, HOBBS BROOK MANAGEMENT,

your gift will be MATCHED dollar for dollar up to $10,000!

 

It’s been a challenging year. Waltham’s low-income residents have been especially challenged by the pandemic and its economic fallout. Seniors, recent immigrants and families already struggling to make ends meet are in danger of going hungry. They need your help.

I’ll help support Waltham’s community response!

In the face of this unprecedented hardship, Healthy Waltham has stepped up.
Since April, our monthly food pantry has been held nearly weekly; to date, 12,500 families have received 325,000 pounds of groceries – from meat, lettuce and eggs to apples, canned veggies and toiletries. 

But the forecast for the coming months is alarming: Experts predict that food insecurity will be felt by families well into 2023. Healthy Waltham is in dire need of your support to sustain its high-level response to this ongoing crisis. 

Will you help us ensure that every Waltham resident can feed their family this winter? From now until December 31st, Hobbs Brook Management has agreed to MATCH the funds we raise during our year-end giving campaign up to $10,000. This means that your contribution of $50 will become $100, $500 will become $1,000, etc. for the vulnerable families of Waltham.

 

Yes! Double my donation!

The need in our community is severe. And at our weekly food pantries, we witness it first-hand: 

  • Parents – many of them essential workers – standing in line in extreme weather conditions for over two hours so they can provide meals for their children;
  • Men and women who have lost their jobs skipping meals in order to be able to pay their bills;
  • A dramatic increase in the number of residents lining up for the groceries we provide – from 400 families a month to nearly 750 families a week.  

We’ve worked hard to ensure that no one walks away from our emergency pantries empty- handed, but our resources are strained and we are in urgent need of funds to sustain our activities. You can help us continue our crucial work. Donate now and your gift will be MATCHED by our generous donors!
