How Does My Donation Help?

Registered 501(C)(3) Nonprofit Organization

As a registered 501(c)(3) charity, we are equipped to easily distribute in-kind donations as well as receive monetary aid without taking a platform fee like most other crowdfunding initiatives, allowing us to make the greatest impact possible.

Senior Housing And Community Shelters

We provide our numerous community partners and beneficiaries with face masks, toiletries, as well as non-perishable groceries to ensure that vulnerable populations remain safe and protected in spite of COVID-19 and its detrimental effects.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

We provide health care and essential care workers with PPE (i.e. face shields) to help them minimize their risk of exposure to COVID-19. We are acutely committed to keeping our workers safe as they continue to risk their lives each and every day.
