Fund supports neighborhood parties

Continue reading below

In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings and other recent violent events that unfolded locally, the Watertown Community Foundation is reminding residents that it reimburses up to $200 for neighborhood block parties that assist local charities. The group’s 10-year-old program provides up to $200 for new events, and up to $100 for recurring events, that seek to raise funds and awareness for a philanthropy. Foundation leaders said they urge residents to get together with neighbors to talk about recent events, express their sadness and support for the victims, and share their thanks for first responders as well as their appreciation for one another. The organization also said residents who apply for “Watertown Strong’’ block-party funding and need suggestions for worthy causes could consider raising money for One Fund Boston; Watertown’s local food pantries; or the foundation’s own Fund for the Most Vulnerable. For more information on how to receive funding, visit the foundation’s website, www.watertownfoundation.org, or e-mail mschade@watertownfoundation.org.
