Please call your State Senator (find out who that is here) and ask them to support Senator Dan Wolf’s Amendment #245 which would keep funding for the Massachusetts Service Alliance at its current level ($750,000) for FY 2012. This would allow Massachusetts to continue its leadership in the service community, providing service opportunities for over 1,000 AmeriCorps members who contribute essential services to people across the Commonwealth.
We need you now more than ever to make the call. Funding at the National level has severely hindered the ability for programs across the state to do what they do best and many will need to rely on this state funding to operate next year.
Massachusetts is the birthplace of programs like City Year, Jumpstart, Youth Build and home to hundreds of other programs that provided needed resources to our most vulnerable communities. Without adequate funding, these programs will be unable to deliver these resources during a time when our country needs it most!
