Lace Up For Change - CAN Initiative
Help Us Help Those Most Affected By COVID-19
COVID-19 is creating new needs, while putting enormous financial pressure on all nonprofits. From medical and public health needs related to the response to economic uncertainty impacting vulnerable populations, the COVID-19 pandemic is creating unmet needs above and beyond the usual.
The nonprofits working directly to meet those needs of the less fortunate require more resources to do so now. At the same time—all nonprofits are feeling the pressure, even if they aren’t directly responding to the crisis. The economic uncertainty caused by the pandemic may cause many donors to dial back. Many nonprofits are also having to cancel many of their usual programs and fundraising events out of concern for public safety. Most nonprofits have limited financial reserves to carry them through lean times ahead, putting them in a difficult spot.
In collaboration, Lace Up For Change (LU4C), 9Miles Project , HOSA and the ladies of the New Horizons CAN are feeding almost 3000 people daily. Include to this, our Junior LU4C Ambassadors have started their own feeding initiative in the Tafelsig / Eastridge area, we are feeding at 11 feeding station across 2 CANs.
This would not have been possible without the blessings from ABOVE and your support. May you all be rewarded abundantly for your generosity and we hope that we can count on your continued Support to keep our pots flowing with the warm nutritious meals for our guests.
If you are in a financial position to do so, you should consider making a donation to directly help combat the COVID-19 pandemic by supporting organizations that are serving vulnerable populations who will be most affected by the virus’ spread and the associated economic impact.
