Catholic Charities of Boston is grateful to the Neponset Neighbors Together Fund and the United Way of Massachusetts Bay for the $10,000 donation last week to the Yawkey Food Pantry in Dorchester. Neponset Neighbors Together is a collaboration among the United Way, Town of Milton, Boston neighborhoods of Mattapan, Dorchester, and Hyde Park through Boston City Councilors Andrea Campbell and Ricardo Arroyo, Milton Interfaith Clergy Association, and Courageous Conversations Toward Racial Justice Milton-Mattapan. Neponset Neighbors Together established a fund to support neighbors of Milton, Mattapan, Hyde Park, and Dorchester who are adversely impacted by COVID-19. The Dorchester pantry was serving 550 people each week before the crisis, and now is serving more than 4,700 every week.
