FRAMINGHAM – During the COVID-19 pandemic, staff at the United Way of Tri-County were forced to cancel all fundraising events. Thousands of dollars were lost that the organization relies on to fund direct service programs in the community. Some of those programs include their Framingham food pantry and hot meal program, their early literacy initiative, and the organization’s emotional support and suicide prevention line.
So United Way staffers put their heads together to figure out a way they could raise funds for critical programs and services, but also create a chance for donors to win big too, and the United Way Super 50/50 Raffle was born.
The United Way team hopes you’ll be part of the fun and excitement that supports local programs and services in our community through the United Way Super 50/50 Raffle.
Sandy Baldi, Special Events Manager said “We are proud of the work we do, and we see firsthand how our programs help families. I’ve staffed our food pantry and talked to a lot of people who have told me they wouldn’t know what to do if we weren’t here.” Baldi continues, “It makes me happy and sad at the same time. I am so glad we can help, but it’s heartbreaking to see families struggling. I really hope the community will have some fun, take a chance, and give hope to some folks who really need it.”’
Half the jackpot stays with the United Way and one lucky winner will take home the other half, a win-win if there ever was one.
