San Diego Asian Americans for Equality (SDAAFE) announced today to start a fund raising campaign for Solutions For Change (SFC) to help them deal with the serious shortage of essentials due to the unusual and rapidly evolving situation surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19).
SFC is a San Diego local organization focusing on solving the issues of family homeless. Currently they are hosting about 300 homeless families in helping equip them with skills, knowledge and resources. For details, please visit: https://solutionsforchange.org/.
Here is the list of essentials they are urgently in need:
- Nonperishable food items
- Trash bags
- Toilet paper
- Hand Sanitizer
- Isopropyl Alcohol 70-90%
- Pure Aloe Vera
- Hand soap
- Disinfectant Vipes
How you can help:
1) Donate the essentials if you can. SDAAFE will set up 3 places for you to drop off you donations: Carmel Valley, Rancho Penasquitos and Carlsbad. Please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org before you do so, and we will let you know the exact addresses.
You can drop off your donation in the boxes anytime at the designated locations. You can also directly drop off your stuff at the SFC headquarter: 722 W California Ave, Vista, CA 92083
For those who donate essentials: if you have the receipts, please send the copy of your receipts to email@example.com. SDAAFE has currently secured a private source to match all the donation made to SFC up to $10,000!
