Report of Food Distribution, August 15, 2020 – What happens August 29 and beyond?

Again, thanks to your generous response to our appeal on Friday, we were again able to  distribute 44 packages, the same number as three previous weeks. And we expect donations to deliver the same amount next week, August 22, 44 packages. But what about the following week, Saturday, August 29 and beyond? And what opportunities present themselves? 

If you check out the video interviews we have posted, you will notice that our food package recipients are ready to give back to the Dos Rios neighborhood. So, starting in September we are planning to provide food support once per month, and we are expanding our mission to help our neighbors improve their skills.

For example, in September we will ask neighbors if they want workshops on…

  • kitchen gardening-to grow your own food
  • shoe repair-to fix your own shoe
  • basic carpentry- to make basic home repairs
  • bicycle repair-to fix your own bike
  • folkloric dance-to celebrate your culture
  • Yoga-to stay calm and connect with yourself

Some of the funds will go toward the few materials needed for these workshops, but if you want to designate for food only, let us know in PayPal or in person.

So please help us with our ongoing mission.

To make a monthly pledge, all you have to do is check this box when making your donation in PayPal.

Make this a monthly payment.
