The Jeff Coombs Memorial Foundation was created in memory of Jeff, a husband and father of three from Abington who was killed in the 9/11/01 terrorist attacks. The foundation assists families across Massachusetts who are affected emotionally and/or financially by death, illness, and other life circumstances beyond their control, helping with household bills, funeral expenses, basic needs, counseling, etc. It also creates community building opportunities for military families and supports special programs already in existence. The Foundation also distributes scholarships to Abington college-bound seniors. Since 2001, The Jeff Coombs Memorial Foundation has distributed more than $600,000. The Foundation has received national recognition in Family Circle Magazine (12/11) and on the Ellen Degeneres Show (2006), and has been honored by Fox 25's Hometown Hero Award, Girl Scouts of Eastern Mass Leading Women Award, Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women, and a Women of Strength Award  #jeffcoombsfund
