connecting community members in the midst of COVID-19
10% of our Federal Stimulus Check
This campaign is inspired by Biblical principles of charity, generosity, and love for neighbor. Many of us are receiving Federal stimulus checks but are eager to support the community around us. We propose donating 10% of these checks towards our affiliate partners who have well-established relationships within the Portland metropolitan area.
$120 to Refugee Care Collective would mean helping a family of six with their utility bill.
