Since 1992 Neighbors 4 Neighbors has been there in times of crisis large and small. Our Covid 19 Relief & Recovery Fund was established a fund to provide relief and recovery from the impacts of this unprecedented crisis.
Since we began our efforts, we’ve raised over $97,682.33, and have been are disbursing that money to organizations providing food distributions. Additionally, we have purchased gift cards for families so they may purchase essential items not included at the distributions. Those who have received funds include, Farm Share, Steps in the Right Direction, Branches, Miami-Dade County Schools, Children’s Service Council and Connect Familias and more.
Additionally, we’ve connected $993,923.67 in additional food and goods, like masks and fun toys to even more partners.
Making a total of over $1,091,606 in support since March of 2020.
We are carefully identifying those organizations who are working with the most vulnerable and where we can make the biggest impact. Your support will help fund these distributions throughout this crisis.
If you have a distribution that is free and open to the public that you would like to share, please email us at [email protected] so we can add it to the list. Send us the date, times (example 9am to 1pm), address and location name in your email.
You can see below a list of distributions separated by county.
