Within 30 minutes we reached our goal of $1,000 and by the end of the day had raised $1,600 to support her.
This woman was hospitalized recently with Covid-19, and the entire family is now ill. She has a 19 year-old son with autism and two other boys, and she is the main caregiver for her autistic son. Because they have been ill, nobody in the family has been able to work for several weeks.
Many thanks to everyone who took action and donated to support this woman in need in our community through our partners at the Howard County Autism Society.
This is the power of a giving circle.
In the 19+ years we've had the Emergency Response Network women have responded to our call to action and have given together to meet and/or exceed every single request, resulting in over $100,000 to directly support over 100 women and their families in Howard County.
Thank you for being a part of the Women's Giving Circle of Howard County and this powerful network supporting women and their families in our community!
