Jack and Cynthia LaMothe moved to Concord 36 years ago to raise their kids, all of whom attended the Concord public schools and played town sports. The LaMothes started giving to the Community Chest right away, and have given every year since. They sought out the organization as they wanted to become involved in and support their new community—and they knew that by giving one gift to the Chest, they could feel confident that their money would be going to support good causes. “Giving to the Community Chest is a trusted way to give one gift to a carefully selected and researched group of needy organizations, most of which are related to Concord,” says Cynthia.
The pair felt so strongly about the Chest that Jack got even more involved, joining the board in the late 1970s, running the annual campaign, and serving as president.
