The Making a Difference in Peabody Foundation was founded in 2002 by local businessman Scott Frasca. The organization helps those in need in a variety of ways. Some types of assistance we provide are as follows:
Clothing - Food - Electricity - Heating Gas/Oil - Fire/Flood Aid - Rental Assistance - Housing Aid - Medical Assistance - School Supplies
Making a Difference has more than 100 volunteers who assist us with numerous programs across Peabody. These volunteers coordinate oil deliveries, manage distribution of food to more than 1,000 people annually, make and donate stocking stuffers for low income children, and deliver blankets and sweaters to low income senior citizens. We have liaisons to senior centers, city agencies, nonprofit organizations, fire and police departments, and all of the Peabody schools. We have an active board of directors and corporate sponsors who donate much of their time and resources in order to help Peabody residents with emergency needs and to provide the strategic management and leadership necessary for the organization to be successful.
