View the Mommas Pearls Show to learn more about the Cause!!
The Port Washington COVID-19 Community Response Fund is being used to make COVID-19 emergency grants for food needs, housing costs and other expenses to existing Port Washington community and faith-based organizations that have strong experience supporting local families.
The Fund expands the local capacity of outreach organizations to address the many needs created by the coronavirus crisis. 100% of donations is going to organizations helping Port Washington residents impacted by this public health crisis.
As of now, three organizations have been identified (Our Lady of Fatima, Parish Outreach; St. Peter of Alcantara, Parish Social Ministry and Littig House Community Center) as providing critical needs for approximately 350 at-risk Port Washington families. That number grows each day.
PW COVID-19 Community Response Grants to community and faith-based nonprofits are made on a rolling basis. As fundraising continues through the outbreak and recovery phases of the crisis, the Fund will adapt to emerging needs as the situation evolves.
To date $50,000 has been awarded. We anticipate the second round of grants to be distributed by the end of May.
