Get ready to bid early - and often - to benefit two worthy local causes. Join the Rotary Club of Acton-Boxborough this February for its virtual silent auction, Bid for Brighter Futures, a fundraiser in support of the Acton Food Pantry and the Domestic Violence Services Network.
The online event will start on February 11, 2021 and end with a gala presentation on February 27, 2021. All net proceeds will benefit these two organizations, which have for years provided essential help to people in need. This year, they need assistance more than ever.
 
For nearly four decades, the Acton Food Pantry has provided nutritious food to clients from Acton and Boxborough. This year it has opened its doors to any needy family and has seen its needs soar.
 
The Domestic Violence Services Network works with local courts and human-service agencies in 12 communities to end the cycle of domestic violence by providing support, advocacy, and resources to victims. The disruptions caused by the COVID-19 crisis have added to the need.
