SUPPORT FOR ALL BROWN MIDDLE SCHOOL FAMILIES

NEED HELP? WANT TO HELP? SIGN UP BELOW

Dear Brown Middle School Community Members, 

As this continues to be a challenging time, we want to continue to be in touch to help ALL and ANY members of our community in need. Whether you need financial assistance, a run to the grocery store, pharmacy, help with Zoom or other online platforms or another type of support, we have members of our community ready to help and be of assistance during this trying time. 

If you’re looking to help others, this is also a great opportunity to do so.

Please click here or below if you NEED HELP or WOULD LIKE TO HELP.  Requests for financial assistance will be visible only to the group moderator listed on the form (blind to the PTO). Other requests will be shared with volunteers ready to help.    

We are also still raising funds for Brown families that need financial assistance. If you would like to donate to this fund, click on the link below. 

BROWN-HELPING-BROWN FUND, provides quick financial help to families (usually within 24 hours) to address urgent and immediate needs. Brown’s administration is facilitating these requests with support from the PTO. Be assured that all communications are private and confidential. Our school’s administrators are also helping connect families in need with additional outside resources, including Newton’s COVID-19 Care Fund

Please consider a donation to either Brown’s or the City’s relief fund if you are able. Volunteers are also needed to help facilitate requests as demand grows, as it is likely to do. Visit the following links to request or offer help:

Brown Supports Families in Need

In these uncertain times, the Brown community remains as strong as ever. The Brown PTO is continuing its work to link those who are able to help with families in need. To date, we’ve raised $1,000 that has already gone directly to several families. The need is expected to grow.

BROWN-HELPING-BROWN FUND, provides quick financial help to families (usually within 24 hours) to address urgent and immediate needs. Brown’s administration is facilitating these requests with support from the PTO. Be assured that all communications are private and confidential.
