If everyone in Newburyport gave just two cents a day, two cans a month to the food pantries and two hours a month in volunteerism the benefits to the community would total over $3,000,000. It's such a simple concept and can be applied in any town. This grass roots organization is innovative and energetic and making a big difference to those less fortunate. They have provided grants for local after school programs, emergency funds for local service agencies, food drives for the food pantries and supported many initiatives that would have fallen through the cracks. They have supplied extra funding to keep the local Meals on Wheels program running five days a week.
