“Volunteering for the Community Chest has helped to shape my opinions about community service, philanthropic priorities and so much more. With a single gift, our donors are able to reach hundreds of individuals right here in Concord and Carlisle who struggle on a daily basis with a broad spectrum of issues. The Chest carefully stewards its resources and subjects every request for funds to a stringent review process. This thoughtful approach provides our donors with the assurance that their gifts are as impactful as possible on a local level. As a past President of the Board, I am thrilled to continue to support the Chest as a donor, an overseer and as a member of two committees. I can’t think of a better way to be supportive of my community and my neighbors in need.”
