As our community begins to rebuild in the wake of COVID-19, some months-old challenges remain, and new challenges have come to light. As businesses, schools and organizations reopen, we continue raising funds for emergency response services–while we expand to help others recover.
Kane and Kendall County residents who were struggling before this crisis have been hit hard. Others who never thought they would need help have sought assistance, at times overwhelming local non-profit organizations that have magnified services to meet their needs.
Together we can make a difference to relieve the burden on those whose lives have been upended by this crisis. The demand for assistance is significantly greater today than it was a month ago.
You can help.
You can donate to support social service agencies in Kane and Kendall counties striving to serve children and families at this critical time. Our Fox Valley Coronavirus Relief and Recovery Fund is gathering personal and corporate donations and distributing them locally to these agencies. Together, we can help stop the increasing economic ripple effect of this pandemic!
Let’s demonstrate resilience, compassion and generosity in the face of this onging public health crisis. Let’s LIVE UNITED!
We are committed to doing our part to ensure that all children and families at risk have the resources they need, now and in the near future. Thank you for your help!
