As a reminder, D.A.R.E Mass. will begin calling residents for donations, but we don't have a program in Abington
D.A.R.E. Massachusetts will begin calling residents over the next couple weeks looking for donations. We don't want to get involved with who you donate to; we just want you to be knowledgeable about it. In the past, residents have donated to D.A.R.E thinking their donation was going to go to a program in the Abington school district but, so you know, there is no D.A.R.E. program in town and there are no plans to initiate one.
We would also like to caution you when making any donation over the phone. Please make sure the group you are donating to is a legit organization and not just someone posing as the organization. Check, double check and be 100% sure who you’re giving your hard earned cash to. If you have any doubts, don’t like high pressure tactics, or just have a “funny feeling” about the caller, hang up!
If you have any questions about D.A.R.E. Mass., you can contact them at 781-324-5055.
