The Gloucester Fisherman’s and Seaman’s Widows and Orphan’s Aid Society Fund

fishermen-s-memorialIn 1865, community members formed the Gloucester Fisherman’s and Seaman’s Widows and Orphan’s Aid Society Fund to help fishermen’s families. The Society continues to help widows and orphans of Cape Ann fishermen that have lost their lives, to this day. When the Society receives an application for funding, it is reviewed, and if the applicant meets the requirements, a monthly benefit of $125.00, and an annual Christmas bonus is awarded. If anyone is interested in applying for this, Please write to Sam Parisi, 108 Commercial Street, Gloucester, Ma. 01930, or email him at [email protected] 19:09
