Military Community Covenant Task Force
Calling Chelmsford Residents
The Task Force is currently looking for volunteers to help support military families, particularly those with a deployed member. You could help by doing simple lawn care, babysitting, helping with meals, etc. The opportunities to help and ways to get involved are limited only to your imagination and skill. Please contact one of the members listed here.
Dear Chelmsford Business Owners
The Task Force is actively seeking contributions from the local business community to support military members in Chelmsford. In the south, many businesses offer discounted goods and services. We hope to implement that same sort of welcome here in Chelmsford. Some examples include: X% off dry-cleaning, X% off haircuts, free appetizer with the purchase of an entrée, X% off meals, and X% off plumbing services for spouses of deployed members. Any contribution of any amount is appreciated.

History & Mission
The Chelmsford Military Community Covenant was established by the Chelmsford Board of Selectmen in 2009, in partnership with Hanscom AFB as a formal effort to support military families living in Chelmsford. The primary purpose of the program is to make Chelmsford feel more like home for military by drawing upon a support network of volunteers and contributions from the local business community.
The Task Force is charged with carrying out the mission of the covenant by actively seeking and organizing volunteers to support military families in times of need, and by securing discounts on services and goods from the local business community.
