CHFGMA Recurring Contributions

Clinton Hill Fort Greene Mutual Aid (CHFGMA) is a coalition of neighbors organizing to support each other through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Recognizing that our community has been impacted by gentrification and systemic racism, we seek to repair harm and create equity through redistribution and advocacy. 

We came together in March 2020 when the COVID-19 lockdown began. We created a phone hotline [(862)277-0747], a website, a Slack workspace, and a newsletter. Since then, we’ve organized a network of thousands of neighbors, to share what we have and fulfill what we need. 

Needs for food and other essential items for neighbors isolating at home has been the most urgent and highly communicated ask from day one. We’ve found that in the majority of cases, neighbors requesting supplies are struggling financially - meaning they cannot cover the costs of essentials like food, medicine, personal care items, baby supplies, cleaning supplies, and PPE. We established our Groceries & Essentials Fund to help cover the costs of these items for neighbors who cannot afford them at this time. We have responded to requests from over 700 households in the area, redistributing over $150,000 through over 1,500 shopping trips.

$25 provides PPE for an individual

$50 helps feed a household of one, monthly

$100 helps feed a household of two or more, monthly

$500 helps feed 4-5 households monthly

There are many ways to get involved. If you’d like to learn more, please visit our website and  follow us on Instagram and Facebook.
