COVID-19 Community Crisis Response
Community Foundation of Randolph County
Foundation establishes fund, reaches out

 As the nation struggles with a collective loss on many societal levels, so too the Randolph County community finds those in crisis, now within a larger crisis. Resources are quickly dwindling for local homeless shelters, food pantries, and non-profits shifting financial priorities. In some cases, operations and services are already depleted of both financial and human capital when the need is greatest.

Community Foundation of Randolph County has developed THE RANDOLPH RELIEF FUND to provide funding to non-profits needing assistance. The funding would be delivered to those non-profits for emergency response needs focused on providing basic food, clothing, shelter, addiction management, and safety for those made more vulnerable to disease due to their circumstances. The Foundation has sent out a COVID19 Local Impact Survey to past grantees and other area non-profits to assess and document both the short and long-term implications of the COVID19 crisis.

There are needs, admittedly, we don’t yet know about.” According to CFRC Executive Director Lisa Jennings, “We are having conversations and soliciting funding from our donors and the community to meet immediate needs. We are surveying non-profits to assess need. Many of those needs will continue in the coming months, if not years, in recovery from this challenging time. Help is needed and we are answering the call with Randolph Relief Fund.”

We would love to boost this resource with help from additional channels of assistance and from donations, which can be made at www.randolphcountyfoundation.org/donate.
