90% of the fundraising goal achieved with the help of neighbors like you
Food InsecurityAs COVID-19 spread, people raided grocery stores to stock up. As a result, local food banks and food pantries are not receiving their normal donations from grocery stores and must purchase extra food to help families and older adults in our community. These costs far exceed what was budgeted and strains their ability to provide for those in need.
Homelessness and HousingDue to Governor Newsom’s “shelter-in-place” order, local homeless shelters have been inundated. Additionally, the practice of congregating homeless individuals in shelters is concerning because homeless individuals often lack the means to reduce their exposure and protect themselves. Without this support, there are increased risks of spreading COVID-19.
Caregiver WellnessThe COVID-19 pandemic puts extra strain on St. Mary caregivers who are on the front lines of this unprecedented health crisis. Existing Foundation funds will be put to this area of need to care for the physical, mental and spiritual wellness of our caregivers, as they care for our community.
A donation makes a difference. Here’s proof.
