WGC *Special* ERN Request Responding to the COVID-19 Public Health Crisis
WGC Emergency Response Network Request - Can You Help?
The Women’s Giving Circle of Howard County received a request from our partners at the Community Action Council (CAC) for $5,000 to help Head Start families in need through the Food Bank. To date, the WGC has raised and matched the $5,000 request through our Emergency Response Network and has sent a $10,000 check to the CAC.
Thanks to the generosity of many donors who want to help, we have raised significantly more than the $5,000 we originally requested.
In order to do the most good during this unprecedented coronavirus public health crisis, we are leaving this funding request open and will continue to send all donations directly to the CAC to address growing food security issues in our community.
Can you help?
Any amount is appreciated. Thank you so much for your consideration.
Our Emergency Response Network is typically utilized for donations up to $1,000 to help an individual in need through our nonprofit partners. However, to address the escalating COVID-19 crisis, we are extending the scope of the ERN to address broader needs and more people.
Thank you so much for donating to assist a women and their families during the COVID-19 public health crisis.
