NEWBURYPORT — Pennies for Poverty will host its monthly “Local Poverty Matters” discussion on March 4. The talk will focus on the Family Stabilization and Emergency Assistance Program established by Pettengill House and funded, in part, by a grant from Pennies for Poverty.
Tiffany Nigro, assistant executive director of Pettengill House, will describe how this new initiative helps families in financial crisis so that they can remain safely in the community.
The free discussion group is open to the public and will meet from 7 to 8 p.m. in the basement classroom of the First Religious Society located at 26 Pleasant St.
The Local Poverty Matters Study Group explores different aspects of poverty in Greater Newburyport in its meetings on the first Wednesday evening of each month.
The Local Poverty Matters group is sponsored by the Social Action Committee of the First Religious Society and Pennies for Poverty.
