Sending a virtual hug this Mother’s Day

Mother's Day

Dear El Centro Hispano friends,

This Mother’s Day is a difficult one for our community. Over the past several weeks, we’ve received hundreds of calls and emails from moms asking for help. Whether it’s wondering how to pay rent or feed their children, being a mother has become even more complicated during the coronavirus pandemic.

During these difficult times, your donations to our COVID-19 Response Fund have made a difference to many local moms and families. Since its launch, more than six weeks ago, we have been able to double our initial goal of $15,000 and assisted more than 1530 people. Thank you for your overwhelming support.

However, the need is still massive and urgent. This is why we have increased our fundraising goal for $70,000. Now, more than ever, our community needs us. And we need you. Help us to assist more families who were purposefully left out of the government’s response to COVID-19 by making another donation.

Motherhood has taught me the meaning of togetherness. While COVID-19 is a new test of our collective strength, we are all in this together, and together we will overcome this challenge.
