Our Board leadership team has established a Community Continuity Fund and committed $50,000 in matching money. This fund has been established to assist nonprofits and support the immediate and emerging needs of our neighbors in Muscatine County caused by coronavirus containment efforts. Donate and Help Support Recovery in Muscatine County. We will match each gift to this fund up to $50,000.
We know that assistance is best provided by a network of experts and experienced service providers, but funding may be a barrier to successful implementation and continuity. We will work to align the resources received to fill the identified gaps quickly and effectively.
On our Donate page, select Muscatine County Funds, Community Continuity Fund. If you are interested in your donation aligning with specific communities, please indicate that with the gift in the comments box.
We, in Muscatine County, will all be impacted in small or large ways by these containment efforts. We trust that you will lend a hand in support whether through adherence to recommended protocol, effectively managing your resources, sharing your time, or providing emotional support for those most impacted and those tasked with the role of caretaker or care provider.
This is an unusual time and it is OK to feel a bit confused or overwhelmed. Please know if you need resources or mental health support you should reach out.
State and federal measures are being taken in an attempt to shorten the time we are impacted by COVID-19. Hang in there. Our community cares!
