Recognizing that the welfare of our neighbors is our welfare and we are “in this together,” the newly convened South County Clergy Association invites their congregants and the wider community to join them in donating their government stimulus check to a new fund called In This Together.
The fund is directed to those who truly need the help to survive the economic effects of the pandemic. It will be administered by the Jonnycake Center for Hope. The Center is our region’s basic needs organization and has a system in place to assess, track, and report on donated funds and the needs they address.
