In these unprecedented times, it's important to care for ourselves, our families and those in our communities. Triveni Mitra Mandal will be conducting following initiatives to support fight against ongoing pandemic and requires your wholehearted support:
1. Helping Senior Citizens and Families in need to get groceries, medical supplies:
Volunteers will be reaching out to the Seniors in our community and will continue to be in touch till the situation improves. Any family (seniors or otherwise) which is in need of assistance, is requested to connect with TMM Executive Committee (click here for the contact details).
2. Food and Monetary Donations towards Mason and Lakota Schools:
Many Ohio students depend on their local schools for free or reduced-cost school breakfast and lunches throughout the school year. Many low-income workers do not have benefits that pay them when their place of employment has closed temporarily. With schools being closed and people not being able to go to work, there is a tremendous jump in demand for food requests. TMM is teaming up with Joshua's Place (for Mason schools) and Reach Out Lakota (for Lakota schools).
3. Food and Monetary Donations towards University of Cincinnati (Bearcat Pantry):
The sudden and unexpected closures have impacted every student at UC. Situation is particularly grim for the International Students as they face tough challenge to meet their daily needs like housing, food and other vital resources. TMM is teaming up with Bearcat Pantry to support critical areas of need for UC students.
