Pennies for Poverty: 2 Cents 4 Change Inc., an organization that strives to end poverty in Greater Newburyport, is scheduled on Wednesday to hold the first in a series of conversations about poverty in the Newburyport, Amesbury, and Salisbury area. During the talk, scheduled for 7 to 8 p.m. at the First Religious Society Church (Unitarian Universalist), 26 Pleasant St., the nonprofit group will examine how charity can both help and hurt people living in poverty, said Michael Sandberg, copresident of Pennies for Poverty’s board of directors. Ingrid Cyros, executive director of the Hugh Doyle Resource Center in Newburyport, will begin the discussion with an overview of poverty in the area and the lessons she has learned about how to help those in need. The discussion series, entitled Local Poverty Matters, is free and open to the public. It will continue the first Wednesday evening of each month.
