Distributing Our Second Round of Relief Fund Grants
We distributed our first round of Relief Fund grants just two weeks ago! This week, because of the ongoing generosity of our donors and church partners, we distributed a second round of critical relief grants—$133,000—to 11 more affiliates.
To date, we have provided a total of $508,000 critical relief grants to 38 affiliates! These relief grants will help cover costs for hot meals, groceries, basic household and hygiene goods (gloves, masks and hand sanitizer), school supplies related to virtual learning, plus emergency cash assistance for rent and basic needs for those with limited to no income in this season, etc.
We're so thankful for God's provision and for the generous hearts who blessed our affiliates. Hear from some of our affiliates, who share how the Relief Fund grants will continue to help their work serving vulnerable and marginalized communities in need.
