Help us provide basic needs to our community during this time in need.
Help us support those most vulnerable to COVID-19. During times of uncertainty and crisis, people come together to support one another. COVID-19 is a test of our collective strength. As community members abide the Shelter in Place order, businesses are closing, and unemployment is spiking. Feeding the kids, making the rent, and keeping the lights on is tougher for many of us than ever before. Please help Santa Cruz and San Benito County! In this time of need and uncertainty, we are all united.
The fund will support our communities by helping youth and families:
1. Connect with immediate needs such as food, utility assistance, access free childcare, mental health support groups, and other essential services
2. Connect people up-to-date, accurate information
3. Provide support to students and their families who require assistance with staying connected to their academic learning and other needed services.
4. Support United Way of San Benito's effort to provide a safety net for their community's needs.
Your gift will help those who are most vulnerable to this COVID-19 pandemic.
If you are an individual or family in need of assistance or support, please dial 2-1-1 or (800-273-2222) to be connected with local resources.
