A Friend in Need (AFIN)

A Friend in Need (AFIN) is an arm of the South Acton Congregational Church (SACC) It is a small, all-volunteer organization dedicated to offering financial aid to people in need in the Acton/Boxboro/Maynard area. A couple with young children were in danger of having their power shut off. With one part-time income, they were financially strapped. Their advocate contacted A Friend in Need, and we were able to provide financial assistance to prevent this family from losing their service. Usually we have a one-time limit for help given to any family, but due to the economy we are trying to be a bit more flexible about that. Our mission is to provide immediate help until the family can receive more substantial aid from other agencies. Much of our money comes through pleas published in our local newspa-

VERRILL FARM PYO PUMPKINS Starting SEPT. 26 & 27 - 10 A.M. TO 4 P.M. Every Sat. and Sun. – 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

pers and from generous community residents. Acton/ Boxborough United Way and the Maynard Community Chest support us through grant money. Besides SACC, several other churches support us through their Mission Funds. Depending on the resources we have on hand, we can usually provide between $300 and $800 to A famithe needy family. Our mailbox is located at the South Acton Congregational Church. Our volunteers pay for postage and all other costs, so we are able to give away 100% of the money we receive. AFIN will consider helping anyone who is recommended by clergy or social professionals associated with a local agency. Anyone in urgent need can be considered for financial assistance by going to a member of the clergy or social service representative and asking them to contact A Friend in Need on their behalf. We do not discriminate and will try to help anyone with a genuine need. We can also be contacted at [email protected] If you would like to make a donation, please send your check to A Friend in Need, c/o South Acton Congregational Church, 35 School St., Acton MA 01720.

Assabet Co-op Market Announces Maynard Location!

Dedication of Polly Hayward & John Fletcher historic signs

The Assabet Co-op Market, a locally sourced, community-owned grocery store owned by more than 1,300 local residents, has announced their Maynard location! The Co-op will open next summer at 2 Powder Mill Road in Maynard, a beautiful riverside property that will feature ample parking and downtown walkability! The Assabet Co-op Market will be a full-service grocery store that prioritizes local food producers, reduces our food’s carbon footprint, increases access to healthy food for all, and keeps control of our food system here in our communities. It will feature every department found in a conventional grocery store, from produce to meat to bulk to deli, along with products sourced from more than 100 local food producers, including farms, cheese makers, brewers, coffee roasters, and more. Everyone can shop at the Co-op, and anyone can become an Owner and get great Owner benefits, from a share of the Co-op’s profits to bulk ordering discounts to a say in the store’s farms, products, and classes. The Co-op recently launched a $2M Capital Campaign to build their store, and Owners have already invested more than $650,000 in interest-paying Owner loans. To learn more about the Assabet Co-op Market and become an Owner online, head here!: https://assabetmarket.coo

According to Council spokesperson Richard Pepin, “These grants can support a variety of artistic projects and activities in Maynard -- including exhibits, festivals, field trips, short-term artist residencies, or performances in schools, workshops, and lectures. Since 2021 is Maynard’s 150th anniversary, or sesquicentennial, we would welcome projects centering on that theme.” The Maynard Cultural Council is part of a network of 329 Local Cultural Councils serving all 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. The LCC Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation, supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, sciences and humanities every year.

Projects must take place between January 1, 2021 and be completed by December 31, 2021. All applicants must reside or be located in Massachusetts.

If this is a collaborative project, please identify the stakeholders and spell out agreements. DID YOU KNOW?

Concord Foreign Motors

Concord Foreign Motors

Swedish Motor Works has changed to Concord Foreign Motors. Repairing/Servicing Saabs and Volvos gave us our great reputation and now that we work on more than Swedish cars, the name needed to reflect that. We’re between West Concord Center and the rotary.
