One Chelsea Fund - 3 Week Challenge Donation - Can we do it?
Our Mission & Outreach Committee will match your donations up to $1,000. Chelsea is in crisis. You may have heard that Chelsea has the highest rate of infection in Massachusetts, on par with New York City. And Chelsea is home to many vulnerable people: newly-arrived immigrants, undocumented families, non-English speakers, and low-income workers and families with children. The economic, social, and health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic were immediate and dire for the many Chelsea individuals and families who live one paycheck away from serious financial hardship. COVID-19 has magnified the challenges this community has long been struggling with: unstable and unaffordable housing, food insecurity, low wages, lack of English proficiency, and high rates of uninsured.
The One Chelsea Fund will provide financial relief to Chelsea individuals and families to meet their basic needs. You have already been so generous, and donated over $1,000! Let’s do more in God's name! Click the ONLINE GIVING button above and designate the amount of your donation. Thank you for your generosity.
