COVID-19 has turned our world upside down in countless ways in a matter of weeks. In response to these challenging times that we are experiencing, the Ottawa County Community Foundation (OCCF) has created a Rapid Response account. This effort is being initiated with a $2,000 donation from The Dr. Derrill A. Hablitzel Family Fund. Please join us in helping those in Ottawa County impacted by this crisis.
This OCCF Rapid Response effort will help support immediate needs of non-profits in Ottawa County as they strive to fill the basic needs of economically vulnerable populations caused by closure and cancellations related to COVID-19, the elderly and other high-risk populations who are experiencing a COVID-19 impact, residents who are food insecure, residents who have no medical insurance or who are underinsured. We will do our best to help our non-profits face challenging times ahead.
Donations to support the Rapid Response effort are greatly needed to meet the needs in our community. We encourage individual donors, companies, and other organizations to contribute to the OCCF Rapid Response effort via our online donation platform on our website
