Helping Others Safely Shelter in Place During Troubled Times
If nothing else, quarantine has reminded me that I have so much to be grateful for in my life--particularly a roof over my head, and a sanctuary from the threats to my health from outside. But what about those whose homes are the source of unhealthy conditions as they shelter in place?
Yachad creates safe and healthy homes that every family deserves and needs to thrive. Many families live in homes without a functioning kitchen, working appliances, or even heat--and in conditions that can exacerbate exsiting health conditions like asthma, which increases COVID risks. I've been supporting Yachad as a board member since before this health crisis began, but better understand now how truly essential their work has always been.
I ask you to think about the importance of your sanctuary now. Shouldn't everyone feel safe and healthy as we spend the most time at home than we ever have before?
This Giving Tuesday help me raise $750 to transform houses into homes again.
YACHAD, Inc is a 501(c)(3) organization. All contributions are tax deductible.
Please consider donating what you can now--every dollar counts. When we are once again able to be together, perhaps you will volunteer alongside me as a handy mensch to fix one of these properties, and support local families in need.
