s you can imagine, the Coronavirus is affecting our people, our programs, and our methods of delivering basic services like food and shelter to some of the most vulnerable in our community.
here is a lot of talk out there that this virus does not discriminate and that it levels the playing field for all of humanity. It certainly seems that way as the news points to
worrying about friends and family who are particularly compromised, experiencing the inconvenience and economic impact of “social distancing” and "self-isolation", doing what we feel is right in “flattening the curve”, making difficult decisions, having the luxury of stockpiling items we believe are good for our families, and bringing kids home from college.
But the reality
of being materially poor or homeless right now is that the Coronavirus has little to do with daily life when
the focus and struggle is still to find a safe place to sleep and secure daily meals to feed their families.
azarus House is that security for so many and we need you now.
have always been there for the Guests of Lazarus House and we know now will be no different. We ask that you continue to see yourself and your family as part of this wider community and, in an effort to slow the spread of the Coronavirus,
“linking arms … from a distance”
to meet the immediate needs of our cherished Guests.
urrently, what we need most during this very fluid time is
so that we can alter our programs and ways of delivering our services quickly and efficiently without a break in the flow of those services to our Guests.
We're sure, over the past few days, you have visited the grocery store, shopped on Amazon and stocked up on the necessities. We ask you to please go to our website and make a donation to help another family feel that same safety and comfort and
even take this opportunity become a recurring monthly donor that would help us in the months to come.
THANK YOU for caring for our most vulnerable Guests!
e will keep you updated with our changing protocols and needs in the coming days and weeks through our Website, Constant Contact and on our FaceBook page.
Sincerely and Gratefully,
Director of Development
