The Women’s Giving Circle of Howard County received a request from our partners at the Community Action Council (CAC) for $5,000 to help Head Start families in need through the Food Bank. To date, the WGC has raised and matched the $5,000 request through our Emergency Response Network and has sent a $10,000 check to the CAC.
Thanks to the generosity of many donors who want to help, we have raised significantly more than the $5,000 we originally requested.
In order to do the most good during this unprecedented coronavirus public health crisis, we are leaving this funding request open and will continue to send all donations directly to the CAC to address growing food security issues in our community.
Can you help? Any amount is appreciated. Thank you so much for your consideration.
As many of you may know, the WGC's Emergency Response Network was created over 15 years ago and is typically utilized for donations up to $1,000 to help an individual in need through our nonprofit partners. However, to address the escalating coronavirus public health crisis, we recently extended the scope of the ERN for a period of time to assist broader needs and more people in our community, and we will continue to pool our dollars so we can have a greater impact together than we might otherwise have alone.
This is our current ERN request. We will continue to send other ERN requests to our network to assist our nonprofit partners in the community.
