Help us raise $500,000 for families impacted by COVID-19
May 1 – May 31, 2020
Requests for food and financial assistance at VEAP are now up five times our normal rate. As the crisis continues and families continue to go without stable income, VEAP predicts even greater demand for help. Our staff and volunteers are working in overdrive to ensure that all families have the food they need to thrive and the stable housing they require to shelter in place. Join us in supporting local families with the resources necessary to weather this pandemic.
Our COVID-19 Relief Fund will directly help families impacted by paying their rent, communicating with landlords and providing access to healthy food. $120 will feed a family of four for an entire month. A gift of $1,200 covers our average housing grant, paid directly to landlords, allowing an out-of-work family to focus on other bills.
The Martin and Esther Capp Family Fund is now offering a $30,000 match! Every dollar donated to the Relief Fund will be generously matched dollar-for-dollar. Please give today and allow us to support twice the number of families. Thank you!
“I am so happy to have received this help. Honestly I was worried because I didn’t know where I was going to get the money to pay rent. Thank you for your diligence and kindness. Thousands of blessings to the team at VEAP.” -Mariela, renter
“I want to say thank you for everything you’re doing. I keep thinking about how much my mom would have struggled if something like this happened when I was little, and I’m truly glad there are people like you endeavoring to make sure people like my mom have one less thing to worry about during these difficult and extraordinary times.” – Cynthia, landlord
Help us spread the word!
