The Women's Giving Circle of Howard County (WGC) is working to raise $2,500 through our Emergency Response Network (ERN) to support our nonprofit partner Columbia Community Care (CCC) with their ongoing efforts to provide food and other necessities to members of our community.
To honor Columbia Community Care volunteers as well as the founders of the Women's Giving Circle, an anonymous donor has given $2,500 to match dollar for dollar in order to supportthis WGC Emergency Response Network request, so we can collectively raise at least $5,000 to support CCC.
Columbia Community Care began in March 2020 in response to the growing and dire needs of community members who continue to struggle in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis.
“The possibility and opportunity for real social change can only be realized with the power that comes from authentic partnerships and collaboration among organizations like WGC and CCC" said Erika Strauss Chavarria, founder of Columbia Community Care. "This power for change is even stronger with women leading the charge and leveraging our collective dollars for greater impact.”
We are proud that in the last eleven monthswe have provided over $16,000 worth of funding and supplies to support our friends and neighbors through CCC.
On behalf of our partners at Community Community Care we are asking for $2,500 to support their ongoing efforts.
Can you help?
All donations will continue to go directly to this effort. Any amount is valued and appreciated, thank you!
