During these difficult times it is important to remember that some people are struggling more than others. Forty percent of Americans have, essentially, no wealth. They live week to week, month to month, and they have little or no savings to pull from in times of trouble. Nowhere are these inequalities more apparent than they are in the lives of the people we serve at the Malibu Community Labor Exchange (MCLE).
At the MCLE we are fortunate to have a devoted and committed leader in Oscar Mondragon. Through Oscar, and the contact information we collect at the MCLE, we have access to approximately 100 individuals and families in need. Although the doors of the MCLE are closed due to COVID-19, we still hope to be able to support, in some way, the workers who are served by the MCLE.
Please consider financially supporting our goal of raising $30,000 to support these 100 individuals and families in need. If you are wondering what to do with the money you won’t spend in restaurants, or clothing stores, or movie theaters, or golf courses, or with government stimulus money you may not need, we want you to know that the MCLE is a worthy organization. We promise to distribute any donated funds judiciously and responsibly. Please consider giving during these challenging times!
