The Waterbury Good Neighbor Fund (WGNF) believes that Waterbury’s strength as a community depends on all of us being neighborly. Sometimes that means a no-strings attached gift to get us through tough times.
If you need some help, please ask for it! The Fund is here for all of our neighbors.
The Waterbury Good Neighbor Fund is open every day. Please call 244-6606 and leave a message on the church machine, and someone will get back to you. We try to make it very easy and to get you the help you need.
Since the flooding we have seen a tremendous outpouring of support from around the country — almost $250,000. Thank you so much!
We are spending that money on people affected by the flood in Waterbury, Duxbury, Moretown, and Bolton. We have written over 150 checks for well over one hundred different families, with an average gift of over $1000. We have helped cleanup from the flood by paying for dumpster service, we have helped families buy clothes they needed to get back to work or go to school. The Waterbury Good Neighbor Fund has paid for contractor bills, for lodging expenses and car repairs. The need is varied and tremendous.
