Neighbor Brigade is grateful for additional support to our COVID-19 initiatives.

- Neighbor Brigade is the proud recipient of a grant from the Middlesex Savings Charitable Foundation. Funding will be used to make our website and information technology platforms more accessible. One of the key components to our project is to update our website with the goal of creating a platform that caters to the variety of users that frequent our site. The grant period for this project is from November 2019 – October 2020.

Recipient Toolkit Sponsor – $1,000
Opportunity to positively impact our clients. When Neighbor Brigade commits to help a new family or individual through a crisis, chapter leaders need to be prepared with supplies and tools to ensure success. Coolers are helpful to have for each family receiving meal deliveries and stationery is useful to send notes to both the families receiving services and volunteers to appreciate their efforts. Printed materials including brochures and other promotional items are very helpful to help spread the word about the services Neighbor Brigade can provide.
