We are a coalition of military veterans, students, stakeholders, and local businesses that all believe that we can make a difference if we work together and organize effectively.
Did you know that in 2019, with unemployment at an all-time-low, close to 30% of Santa Clara County residents still suffered from food insecurity? 10,000 people went unsheltered on any given night and one in three students from SJSU have to choose between paying for their bills or meals.
The current California housing crisis and the cost of living certainly exacerbated this issue here in the Bay Area. Can you imagine what must be happening now? With an unemployment rate closing in on 15% (Politico, 5/8/20) amongst one of the most prevalent pandemics in our history. There is no clear end in sight.
Please know this is not meant to cause more angst. Only to be informative and to inspire action. We have been inspired, and the time to get involved in NOW.
During COVID-19, our work in the community has been to build systems of support and identify those in the community that need that extra bit of love. With your help, and the generous contributions of our sponsors, we can deliver “Love Bombs” containing medicinal, nutritional, and emotional support to Bay Area residents affected by COVID-19.
We are asking our friends, families, and fellow citizens to stand tall with us to support our position and help us learn to grow our capacity and bring positive change to our collective circles.But we need your help.
