We all love a great Fourth of July but the money to plan it doesn’t come from thin air. It takes a lot of time, effort, and funding for the city to put on a fun Fourth of July celebration.
Dunkin Donuts has once again pledged $10,000 if the city matches it through private contributions. The establishment has been doing this for years to pay for the city’s annual Fourth of July fireworks.
City employees and elected officials set up collection sites to solicit cash to match the pledge and every year have been successful and met the challenge. The show cost about $38,000 per year so the private contributions are really necessary for the show to go on.
According to an article in The Sun Chronicle, city officials say they have raised $6,000 so far this year. Therefore, another $4,000 is needed to meet the challenge. Once the challenge has been met, much more is still needed to fully fund the event.
If you would like to help the city complete this challenge and make a donation, make a check payable to Attleboro Fireworks Fund.
