COVID-19 Community Response Fund Grants Providing Help and Hope
Financial help during this pandemic is a much-needed resource for those in need.
These grants from the COVID-19 Community Response Fund are providing local nonprofit organizations the resources they need to directly impact residents from Calumet, Outagamie and the Neenah/Menasha area of Winnebago counties, most of whom have lost their jobs as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Jake’s Diapers — A $5,000 grant will help the organization purchase diapers that are distributed to agencies helping Shawano County families meet their basic needs.
CAP Services — With a mission of transforming people and communities to advance social and economic justice, the organization will use a $5,000 grant to provide basic needs support to people living in Outagamie and Waupaca counties.
Fox Valley Veterans Council – To help prevent local veterans from becoming homeless or entering a cycle of poverty, a grant of $5,000 will enable the council to sustain its Veterans Emergency Fund, which it uses to provide emergency basic needs assistance to veterans living in Outagamie, northern Calumet and northern Winnebago counties.
St. Vincent de Paul-Appleton – To help vulnerable people living in Outagamie and Waupaca counties remain safe in their homes and prevent homelessness, a $20,000 grant will help the organization respond to an increase in urgent requests for assistance with food, transportation, housing and other basic needs.
