The holidays are typically a time to be with our loved ones and express gratitude for the blessings in our lives. For all of us, the pandemic has altered our ways of celebrating, but for many in our community, it has brought economic challenges that leave little to celebrate.
The Foundation's Gifts of Kindness Fund assists individuals and families who are experiencing a sudden financial setback by providing emergency relief through dozens of local nonprofits partners. This year, individuals and families seeking assistance from Gifts of Kindness has increased nearly 30% due to the negative economic effects of the pandemic. Currently, more than 90% of awards from Gifts of Kindness are focused on eviction prevention and stabilizing housing.
Today, on Giving Tuesday, thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, all donations made to the Gifts of Kindness Fund will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $2.5 million!
