COVID-19 EMERGENCY UPDATE
If you are like most people, you are probably busy stocking your pantry in anticipation of the increasing possibility of a 14-day quarantine, due to the rapidly spreading Coronavirus.
Unfortunately, the people who depend on Elijah’s Promise for food do not have that luxury. They feel lucky when they have enough food from day-to-day, let alone enough for two weeks.
Just imagine how terrifying it must be to be in their shoes, completely dependent on others for basic necessities, like food.
In the last ten days, we have spent over $25,000 on emergency supplies including food, new freezers, and sanitation supplies. We need your help to continue these efforts.
Not only that, due to the economic impact of the Coronavirus, we expect a dramatic increase in the number of people who need meals, as the economic downturn will certainly impact those at risk.
At the same time, many of the fundraising and volunteer groups we rely on to donate and prepare meals are greatly impacted as well, creating the perfect storm of increased need with decreased resources.
Please consider making a one-time emergency contribution. Or if possible, a monthly donation to help ensure we can provide food to those in need all year long.Donate Now
We are making an urgent appeal to you, because none of our work can happen without your support. Please be as generous as you can to support families in need.
Michelle Wilson, Executive Director, The Elijah’s Promise Board of Trustees and Staff
