Dedham COVID-19 Relief Fund
The Dedham COVID-19 Relief Fund, established by Dedham Town Manager Leon Goodwin, the Select Board and other community leaders in partnership with United Way of Massachusetts Bay, will help individuals and families who have been financially impacted by this coronavirus pandemic with a focus on our most economically vulnerable neighbors.
As COVID-19 reverberates across hospitals, offices, schools and homes, Dedham residents are struggling with how the disease, and its economic fallout, will impact their ability to eat, stay in their homes and ensure access to medical care and other critical supplies. This fund was established to mobilize those who can give to do so generously to support their neighbors.
