MOBILIZING THE CARING POWER OF COMMUNITY.

What was our annual Day of Caring is this year growing to become an entire Week of Action! Check out all the exciting ways to engage as individuals, families, corporate teams, and faith groups -- with both remote and in-person opportunities -- to give back to the community.

SUPPLY DRIVES

Donate food for the Acton Food Pantry, school supplies for students in need, masks for several local organizations, or essential items for Household Goods.

BRING THE JOY OF ART

Assemble art kits for residents in Minuteman Arc group homes. Wednesday afternoon at Acton Arboretum. Great family activity!

WRITE LETTERS TO SENIORS

Craft a note to bring a smile to an isolated senior. We hope to gather letters in English, Russian, Chinese, and Spanish.

DRIVE-BY ICE CREAM FOR SENIORS

Scoop ice cream and spread some joy. Events at Acton Senior Center (Tu 9/22) and Boxborough Community Center (Th 9/24).

CONNECT AN ISOLATED RESIDENT

Donate a tablet you no longer use for those who need a way to connect, especially now.

CHALK THE WALK

Share your creativity to help promote racial justice. Reserve a square on the sidewalk in West Acton Village to create chalk art.

CLEAN UP YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD

Adorn gloves and venture out to pick up trash in your neighborhood. Let's see how much we can gather in total! Upload pictures, or post with #ABWeekOfAction
