While everyone has been impacted by COVID-19, some of the people hit hardest are low-income service workers. They work in restaurants, hotels, and retail stores. Many were laid off earlier this week. Others have suffered significant cuts in work hours. Some have been forced to miss work so they can stay home with young children.
These families and individuals have few or no assets to fall back on. They're need now is for our community’s support to remain housed and fed.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Bridges was forced to postpone our major annual fundraiser, the Chili Cook-off, originally scheduled for March 29th. Our next two scheduled fundraisers in May and June are also in doubt. The result is that we suddenly have fewer resources to help our low-income individuals and families who are at greater risk than ever. So we need your help!
Your donation today will help us soften the impact this pandemic has on our clients by providing them with food and rental assistance.
Every dollar you donate will help someone. Your entire donation will go directly to your neighbors in need of rental and food assistance. Not one dollar will be used for staff costs or fundraising.
