#GIVINGTUESDAY | A GLOBAL DAY OF GIVING AND UNITY
On December 1, 2020 we come together as a global community…
To give. To help. To thank. To heal.
"Communities United teachers have been making strides in making the distance learning process effective. In these troubling times, in the words of one teacher to our families, “Emotions are high, give children as much time as possible to complete tasks,” recognizing the importance of mental health and reducing stress. Teachers have been helping parents in numerous ways, including creating a schedule for their child’s at home learning, or helping filling out a FASA form for college. Other teachers have been involved in making educational videos, or making activity kits and dropping them off for families. Teachers have been buying food and materials and dropping them off for families too, demonstrating a great deal of kindness. For their part, children have been instrumental in facilitating communication, translating for their parents when they talk to their teachers. We’re grateful for the contributions of each of our incredible teachers who are each doing their part to make the situation feel a little better each day. "
This year many of the families CUI serves are struggling more than ever due to the ongoing pandemic. As most of you know, approximately 90% of the families CUI serves are living at or below the federal poverty level.
Many of our families have indicated an increase in food insecurity as a critical family need.
We are asking for your help in supporting our Food Backpack Program which directly impacts our most vulnerable children and families.
If you are able to donate an item or two to this cause, we would be so grateful.
Together we can accomplish so much more.
Consider supporting this worthy cause today.

#GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.
Communities United, Inc. is a Massachusetts 501 (C) (3) non-profit organization serving 350 children annually, ranging in age from 4 months to 5 years old and speaking 18 different languages. The majority of the children enrolled, live at or below the federal poverty line. Many of them are "at-risk "or disadvantaged. The majority are Dual Language Learners, and only 38% of our children speak English.
CUI levels the playing field for these children and their families;education is the great equalizer.
