Help Westside Friends support neighbors!

Hi neighbors! We started Westside Friends  to make sure that everyone in our community can receive the help they need during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. 

We are a small all-volunteer team, but we know that we are as strong as our community. In the past week, we have signed up 400 volunteers and helped meet dozens of requests from neighbors in need of support. These are difficult times but together we are determined to keep each other safe and show our neighbors we care. 

We’re also learning that we need your help to support our most vulnerable neighbors. As the COVID situation develops, we are hearing that many food pantries are overstretched and have begun receiving requests for food donations. With many nonprofits out of service right now, resources are stretched thin. 

That’s where you come in. We are starting a fund to help support the cost of groceries and supplies for our neighbors. While some of our volunteers have generously paid for groceries or supplies in addition to giving their time, not all can afford to take on the extra costs right now.

Can you help us sponsor supplies and groceries so we can meet every request that comes in?

Here are some ideas for what your contribution can support:
