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 September 19 Giving Event, to be held at Luna Rosa beginning at 6 p.m.
The three nonprofits scheduled to present on Tuesday, September 19th at Luna Rosa are:
HELPIS Help Me Help Someone, Inc. (HMHS) is a social network for kind and charitable deeds. It connects people in need with people who want to help. There are people in need in every community and more often than not, there is someone willing to help just around the corner. But how do these people find each other? Help Me Help Someone helps individuals uncover opportunities to help others, right in their own community.
Community Teamwork Inc.’s Rita O’Brien Dee Center for Behavioral Health & Development offers programs and services that will promote healthy social-emotional development, increase children’s success in school, strengthen children and families and mitigate adversity through trauma-informed care. The program was kickstarted by a generous anonymous donation and a $20,000 grant through the Greater Lowell Community Foundation and is currently seeking further support as CTI performs a needs assessment, analyzes the behavioral health needs of children and staff and identifies gaps in critical services.
Tewksbury Police Athletic League sponsors learn-to-skate seminars, community concerts, youth sports and more, in an effort to promote positive relationships between law enforcement and youth through community-based educational programs and recreational opportunities.
At the September 19 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 two generous sponsors, as well as additional optional donations from members.
Social hour will run from 6 – 7 p.m., and the meeting will promptly begin at 7 p.m. Interested residents are cordially invited to attend, with no obligation to join or donate.
The 100+ People organization is seeking two sponsors for the event. If interested in sponsoring, please reach out to Sponsorship Chair Shana Abbott at 100PeopleTewksbury@gmail.com.
