Coming Together to Help Those Affected by the Federal Government Shutdown

 

 

United Way of North Central Massachusetts (UWNCM) is responding to the call for help during the Federal Government Shutdown. Based on the increased requests from area agencies who provide basic need services, (food, shelter, and related needs) UWNCM is granting $130,000 to nine area providers.  Funds will be earmarked for those affected by Federal Government Shutdown (FGSEA). 

 

Individuals and families that are being affected by the FGSEA can contact these agencies for assistance in food, shelter, and other basic needs.
