Newton Project Takeout: Two for One Special is a community-wide effort to support Newton restaurants and families during the Covid crisis. Inspired by Boston's Project Takeout and run by Newton Neighbors Helping Neighbors and the Newton Rotary Foundation, the project seeks donations that will support both local families and the restaurants; hence, the Two for One Special. Here's how it works:
You donate to this effort via the Newton Rotary Foundation (RotaryNewton.org)
Your donation will be used to purchase gift cards from Newton restaurants, a business sector that has been hit hard by the pandemic
A team of advisors selects restaurants for gift card purchases
As donations come in, different restaurants will be selected for purchases, so that many can benefit
NNHN will help ensure the gift cards are distributed to local residents experiencing food insecurity
Your contribution will help see a restaurant through a tough time and lighten the load for a hungry family. Please spread the word about this effort. As an added benefit, because your donation will be received by the Newton Rotary Foundation (a tax-exempt 501(c)(3)) organization, it is tax deductible. Corporate matching and donations are encouraged.
Encourage your favorite restaurant to participate by filling out this form.
