Stand Up & Deliver (COVID-19 Donations)
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, 62% of our County’s public school children received free and reduced lunch. Since this pandemic began, more than 90,000 residents have been laid off from work.
This has further compounded challenges and increased the limitations for many families to provide meals daily. Additionally, our first responders and medical professionals who are fighting on the front lines of this pandemic rarely have an opportunity to stop serving and purchase a meal.
With numerous goodwill inquiries, calls, and emails from the community-at-large to lend a helping hand and safely assist where needed, the “Stand Up & Deliver” program has been established. It is an innovative and targeted solution to build capacity for community-based organizations and small businesses to address the food insecurity and basic needs of our fellow Prince Georgians.
How Does It Work?
Through your contribution, we can partner with the United Way of the National Capital Area, local non-profits, and our local restaurants to provide food and/or prepared meals weekly to our seniors, families, and individual residents. Besides food, there are many other needs within our community where your support will help. From hygiene and paper products, to baby items, and personal protective equipment, your donation will help meet many of the daily needs of our families, first responders, and medical personnel on the front lines fighting this pandemic.
How Can I Help?
We are asking you to join us by making a donation today to the Stand Up & Deliver program. Your contribution will go a long way in the immediate and long-term recovery as we fight for the stability of Prince Georgians during these unprecedented times.
