We are nearly there! Thanks to the generosity of caring contributors, the matching grant for the Greensboro Association’s Community Relief Fund is very close to reaching its goal. Initiated by 8th grade summer resident Rhodes Boester and supported by a generous anonymous donor, this grant will match up to $10,000 of funds raised by July 31st.
With just over a week left, now’s the time to make a donation of any size, and the impact of your gift will be doubled.
The Community Relief Fund is making monthly distributions to organizations best positioned to meet emergency needs. Initial support has been targeted toward food, medical supplies, and personal protective gear necessary for first responders. We are committed to providing critical support throughout the coming year, so every dollar raised matters!
Donations can be made through the Greensboro Association website (www.greensboroassociation.org
), or by personal check (mail to GA, Community Relief Fund, PO Box 59, Greensboro, VT, 05841).
For more information about the Fund and the matching grant, read what Rhodes himself has to say:
My name is Rhodes Boester, and I am in eighth grade. I live in Rye, NY with my parents and two brothers. During my time at home during this pandemic, I began to think of ways to help people in the Greensboro Community impacted by the Covid-19 epidemic. I spent some time looking at organizations that help those hit hard during these times. One group and cause stood out to me: The Greensboro Association Community Relief Fund. I chose it for many reasons. First, I have spent a lot of time in Greensboro throughout my life, and know how special the community really is. Secondly, it is a small organization, and is likely to not have the resources to help people as large charitable organizations have. There are many small businesses and people who are struggling to make ends meet, and this group is helping them. Please consider a donation, however big or small, to this organization. There are two ways to donate: Either send a check to Greensboro Association, Community Relief Fund, PO Box 59, Greensboro VT. 05841, or visit their website (https://www.
greensboroassociation.org/ covid/). An anonymous donor will match all donations, up to a sum of $10,000. When donating, mention my name to have your donation matched.
