Mission Statement

Pennies for Poverty is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization whose mission is to ease the impact of poverty on the people of Greater Newburyport by endorsing models of assistance that promote dignity, supporting allied organizations both financially and collaboratively, increasing community awareness of poverty through citizen education, and inspiring and encouraging volunteerism.

Description

Pennies for Poverty, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was founded in 2008 with the belief that if everyone in the community does a little to help those in need, we can substantially reduce poverty and improve the well being of all members of the community. The original mantra for the organization was "2 Cents, 2 Cans, 2 Hours, Together." That is, everyone should put aside 2 cents a day and 2 cans a week and volunteer 2 hours a month so that together we reduce poverty.
