100+ People Who Care Tewksbury Names Q1 Award Nominees

Interested residents are welcome to attend event; Polimeno named vice-chair

TEWKSBURY — 100+ People Who Care Tewksbury, the local chapter of the 100 Who Care Alliance, announced the three local nonprofits that will present to members and guests at the group’s March 28 Giving Event, to be held at Luna Rossa beginning at 6 p.m.

The three nonprofits scheduled to present on Monday, March 27 at Luna Rossa are:

Newhouse Wildlife Rescue is a wildlife rehabilitation facility located in Chelmsford and serving the Merrimack Valley. They are dedicated to providing the highest standard of care to injured or orphaned local wildlife. Newhouse also educates the public on how to coexist with the wild animals that surround us. It is their goal to share the stories of the animals in their care, not only to raise awareness, but to inspire kindness in others.

The Tewksbury Community Pantry provides short- and long-term food assistance to Tewksbury residents in financial need and to people who are referred by Tewksbury clergy and the Town Clerk’s office. The Pantry was established in January 1995 and is situated adjacent to the Department of Public Works on Whipple Road. Their team of board members and volunteers fiercely advocate for the needs of those experiencing food insecurity.

The Tewksbury Memorial High School Theater Company brings students together through their passion for theater arts. With the support of an artistic/musical director and technical director, the company puts on three high-quality productions each school year; the Fall Play, Winter Production and Spring Musical. The Theater Company enthusiastically welcomes all students at TMHS to join them in bringing theater to life!

At the March 28 event, 100 People Tewksbury will hear from representatives of these three nonprofits and award more than $10,000 to one cause as voted on by members.

The two nonprofits not selected will receive $250 from our two generous sponsors, Dance Expressions and Eco Auto, as well as optional donations from members.

Social hour will run from 6 – 7 p.m., and the meeting will begin promptly at 7 p.m. Interested residents are cordially invited to attend, with no obligation to join or donate.
