Mayor's Worthy Cause
The Mayor's Worthy Cause is an account from which the Mayor supports a wide array of worthwhile events and activities that benefit the citizens of Taunton of all ages. The Mayor's Worthy Cause is generously supported by donations from businesses and individuals who believe in the importance of investing in our community.
The Mayor's Worthy Cause has supported the annual Summer Celebration in the past and continues to support the Lights On festival as well as the annual Christmas Parade that draws thousands of citizens to the region every December. Scholarships, summer activities and home heating assistance programs have all benefited from the Mayor's Worthy Cause. Each year, new events and programs are created and ongoing programs are supported by the Mayor's Worthy Cause.
