The COVID-19 pandemic has hit our region hard. The Community Foundation is:
- responding to the current challenges of our local organizations,
- will support recovery of these essential organizations, and will
- lead in supporting the rebuilding of our region for the wellbeing of all citizens.
We continue to monitor this quickly moving situation and are working to provide supports that will assist and help those most vulnerable in our community and bridge the gaps. In response, we have established the Better Together COVID Response Fund to support all sectors serving our community, and the Community Kitchen and Foodbank Fund to ensure our vulnerable population have access to healthy and adequate food.
Better Together COVID Response Fund
We have not dealt with an economic and health crisis prior and recognize these times are unprecedented. This fund will support organizations now as they manage the crisis and will be available as they rebuild to their new norm.
Community Kitchen and Foodbank Fund
This fund is designated to support the Salvation Army food hamper needs and the Community Kitchen hot meal program.
