Circle of Hope
RTN Circle of Hope is a community project with two areas of focus during the COVID-19 crisis – providing charitable support for individuals in our community experiencing food insecurity and creating a social connection for members.
Funds are dispersed discretely and anonymously in the form of $200 gift cards from local stores selling groceries such as Walmart, Market Basket, Hannaford’s or Stop & Shop. Gift cards are distributed through our designated community partners including Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless, Family Health Center of Worcester and Healthy Waltham.
During this unusual year, we were not able to raise funds for homeless teens and families through our annual Walk Home 5K fundraiser, and we were not able to hold our annual Foundation Golf Tournament to raise funds to support our general charitable giving.
We hope you will join us in support of RTN Circle of Hope to help families in our Credit Union communities who need food assistance during COVID-19, especially during the holidays.
Circle of Hope Facebook Group
We’ve created a private Circle of Hope Facebook group as a way of supporting each other through the pandemic by sharing information and insights. You are welcome to join us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/rtncircleofhope/.
