Many people fondly remember with respect and admiration, the good heart and boundless generosity of Alvin Glaser. Alvin was a founding member of the Dartmouth Youth Commission, a non-profit youth and family support agency for the Town of Dartmouth. Alvin was more than a philanthropist. His generosity sprang not from his ability to give but from a deeper place. Alvin took the time to look into the eyes and hearts of people and then asked, “Tell me what you need.” Alvin, businessperson, family man and beloved town resident was a quiet giant who over the course of his life set the standard for living and giving in community.
In 2002, the Glaser family established a fund under the care of the Dartmouth Youth Commission that would continue in spirit and purpose, the ideals that Alvin embodied. The Alvin Glaser Memorial Family Assistance Fund was created to assist Dartmouth families and individuals within families, during times of financial hardship caused by illness, death, unemployment or other unexpected events. The Glaser Fund exists solely for the purpose of helping persons in need.
We are turning to you and other caring community members so that the Alvin Glaser Memorial Family Assistance Fund can continue to help people in the future. As you know, these are difficult times for some families within Dartmouth. Your tax-deductible contribution to the Glaser Fund will lesson a hardship for a family in need. Please consider giving today.
Donations can be sent to the Glaser Fund, c/o the Dartmouth Youth Commission, 400 Slocum Road, Dartmouth, MA 02747. For additional information, please call the Youth Advocate’s Office at 508-910-1855.
Thank you for your consideration.
