Stepping Up For Each Other in 2020

Published by David Crowley on

We have said many times in 2020 that we need each other now more than ever. That has certainly proven true, and I have taken inspiration from the way people in our communities have stepped up for each other.

We have seen thousands fed due to generosity of people like you. Hands quickly raised when someone quarantining with COVID needs a trip to the grocery store. Youth showing up to connect with their peers and SCI AmeriCorps mentors.

SCI is also grateful for the way that people have stepped up to support our work, as well as many other charities that have been helping people get through this unprecedentedly difficult year.

I am pleased to report that we have raised over $13,000 to date in our 2020 year end fundraising campaign. A big thank you to all who have contributed! We are just about halfway to our fundraising goal for our fiscal year, which goes until June 30 – about where we should be on December 31!

You can still make a 2020 tax deductible donation donation online up until midnight tonight (12/31) via this link. And contributions in January are welcome and needed too!

Best wishes to you and your family for a happy & healthy 2021!
