The Caring Community Foundation Emergency Fund is helping to provide relief for COVID-19 local needs. The CCF has received over $12,500 for emergency response from dozens of individuals and businesses. To date, $9250 has been awarded to help meet community needs related to healthcare, food insecurity and rent assistance. The rest of the current balance is available for health/rent/mortgage/utility needs created by the pandemic.

The CCF is grateful to all donors and charitable partners who are making immediate community assistance possible. Working together, we are bringing relief to our neighbors.
