COVID-19 Emergency Fund
COVID-19 Emergency Support Needed
Tempe Community Council is collecting funds specifically for COVID-related needs in our community.
Donated dollars will be directly granted to organizations feeling the financial and resource burdens of the current pandemic and numerous requests for support.
Many residents are without jobs needing rental and utility assistance to stay in their homes and basic items of food. Others are more isolated, having reduced communications and contact with others, especially seniors and those with disabilities. Sheltering in place, safety measures and physical distance along with reduced resources have put those homeless in an even more critical state. Volunteers and support staff are limited and greatly reduced – but the need is even greater than pre-pandemic. Non-budgeted and unexpected costs of sanitation supplies and personal protection equipment are draining dwindling funds, and individual contributions and grant resources have significantly decreased or dropped-off.
COVID 19 is having an unprecedented impact on Tempe residents and clients and help is needed.
By donating to the COVID Emergency Fund, your gift will significantly help reduce this burden, and allow us to get your funds to those agencies providing essential services who could better use their staff resources to help clients than having to focus on additional fundraising. Any amount will help.
Together we will get through these tough times to hopeful brighter days in this next year.
Thank you for helping your neighbors and your community by considering giving a gift today!
Please stay safe and #MASKUPAZ.
