COVID-19 RELIEF FUND
In the midst of school shutdowns, homestay orders, government lockdowns and this global pandemic, GO Campaign’s army of grassroots Local Heroes continues to work tirelessly. We are checking in them day and night, listening and adjusting to their vital and ever-evolving needs.
So far, GO Campaign has provided over $240,000 in Emergency Grants to our partners on the frontlines of the pandemic, helping them give children and their families access to food, health care and educational resources. We are cutting through the red tape faster than ever.
New needs arise every day, and we are adjusting to our partners’ needs, just as we always have. A little bit goes a long way, and any amount makes a HUGE difference in the lives of the children we serve.
