Last fall, we asked our customers to nominate local charities that were important to them for us to make donations to as we closed out 2020. We know that many small businesses were hit hard due to the pandemic and that charities will feel the fall out of decreased donations. As trash collection is fairly recession proof, we wanted to help where we could while we had the opportunity to do so.
We received over 20 nominations from over 3 dozen of our customers and chose 12 overall. We focused on duplicate nominations as well as charities that were located in and impacted those directly in the towns we serve while also choosing a couple larger national organizations that assisted our customers directly. We tried to share all on social media but the holidays caught up to us so we wanted to share the full list below:
Acton Community Supper and Food Pantry, Inc
ALS Association Massachusetts Chapter
Stow Food Pantry
Minuteman Senior Services
Stow Community Chest
Household Goods Inc.
Fisher House Foundation
Warrior Foundation Freedom station
Best Buddies of MA
Hudson Community Food Pantry, Inc
Acton-Boxborough United Way
Warm Hearts of Stow
We appreciate all of you who took the time to share your stories and your nominations. Cheers to a happy, healthy 2021.
