Donations to REACH are being used to provide essential needs to those experiencing homelessness during the COVID-19 crisis. With the closure of congregant meal programs, financial assistance programs and many social service agencies we are finding an increase in the need for hygiene items, dog food, feminine hygiene items, socks, underwear, diapers, laundry vouchers, formula, bus passes and medical co-pays.
In addition to these needs, our only Emergency Shelter closed on April 17, 202 so there is an increase in our most vulnerable community members that will have to resort to living on the streets, in the woods and in their vehicles. No new intakes are being done by shelter programs in our area; this is resulting in a increased need for tents, sleeping bags, blankets and gas cards.
We thank you for your donation; your assistance will be used to provide the many people in our community experiencing homelessness. REACH is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Federal Tax ID 84-3965548. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. If you have additional questions please contact Executive Director Stacey Witte (provide email link here and phone if available).
