Thank you all so much for your donations! We have been able to help many families with financial support through this campaign all thanks to you!
We want to relaunch these efforts in hopes of supporting more families during this winter season. Again, many families have received stimulus checks a second time, while a lot have not. TCEP wants to support those that continue to struggle without much support. Please share and donate to help us reach our new goal and to continue supporting those most in need.
For almost 20 years, Telpochcalli Community Education Project (TCEP) has served the most vulnerable population of Little Village and surrounding communities. During these challenging times, we continue to serve our communities given that the impact has been dramatically felt in the area. Since March, TCEP has connected with more than 600 families in Little Village. We are doing this via calls, text messages, social media networking platforms, and Zoom meetings. Organized parent leaders have been responding to families’ needs providing emergency supplies, services and accurate information.
Requests from families are increasing as people are dismissed or fired from their jobs. Families are feeling more anxiety of the uncertainty and are deeply worried about how they will manage to survive in these circumstances with no income. To help address the growing needs of families in the community, TCEP has launched The Little Village Mutual Aid. TCEP will prioritize funding starting with single parent households and elders that are not eligible for government relief services.
We urgently and kindly request your economic support. Join us in this effort to support the most vulnerable families in need by making a donation today in any amount you can and/or by sharing this campaign in your page. Our goal is to raise $50,000.
