Assistance to Neighbors in Need

As the holidays arrive, I want to thank all of our generous neighbors who have contributed to the Neighbor to Neighbor (N2N) COVID-19 Relief Fund. The outpouring of support from this community has been heartwarming.

Thanks to their donations, N2N has been able to work hand in hand with Madison Youth & Family Services to provide $100,000 worth of direct assistance to our neighbors in need. Unlike any other time, this fund is able to provide a direct payout to individuals and families impacted by COVID-19. So far more than 150 applications have been accepted, and the numbers are continuing to grow.

Just as the disease changes each day, the requests we have received for help continue to evolve moment to moment. It is amazing to me the challenges that people have faced during this crisis. I feel so grateful that N2N has been able to provide some relief thanks to the generosity of people like our supporters.
