In response to the unprecedented crisis in our community, First Parish has committed to sharing 1/2 of its undesignated donations during each Sunday service with a local organization needing assistance.

For the next few weeks, our donations will go to REACH Beyond Domestic Violence. REACH is a comprehensive domestic violence service agency serving 7,000 people a year through a combination of intervention and prevention services. Their shelter, 24-hour hotline, and community-based direct services provide domestic violence survivors with the help they need to achieve permanent safety and independence. Their Prevention programs engage the community, generate conversations, and create locally-based solutions to end domestic violence.

Please consider a donation by attending an online Sunday service and participating in our plate share, visiting our donation page, sending a check to First Parish in Wayland with REACH in the memo, or donating directly to the organization.
