The coronavirus has exposed deep vulnerabilities in the safety net serving individuals and families. Increased unemployment, lost revenue from mandatory closures, and increased demand for food, housing, and mental and physical health care have placed unprecedented demands on regional nonprofits fulfilling basic needs. On August 3, the #ONEDAY Critical Needs Alert will help our entire community to get behind the 190+ nonprofits in Allegheny and Westmoreland Counties serving vulnerable populations
Your donations will benefit organizations providing basic needs such as child care and nonprofits offering mental and physical health care, which has been made more difficult to access as a result of the pandemic.
