Helping Low Income Families Combat COVID-19

First, I would just like to say that this project is not just organized by me, Mir Bahri. It also includes many leaders from the Harker Highschool including Carol Wininger, Dominick Piscione, Ethan Choi, Natasha Yen, Kris Estrada, Samvita Gautham.

THE ISSUE

COVID-19 has impacted the economy, but more so people. Already, more than 26 million people have lost their jobs across the country, and that number is expected to rise even more. In California, there is an estimate of 3.9 million jobs lost by May. In the Bay Area, economists predict that more than 800,000 jobs will be lost by May. Although Silicon Valley may be home to high tech, not everyone remains in protected and adaptable jobs. Losing a job means losing one’s source of income, making it extremely difficult for people to pay rent, purchase food and item necessities, and so much more. 


OUR MISSION & OUR PLAN

Our first initiative is to target small struggling businesses and people in need of food services simultaneously, by giving part of our proceeds to a family-run restaurant in exchange for distributing free meals. The rest of the revenue from the fundraiser will go towards donations to the Second Harvest Food Bank, as they are struggling under the weight of an influx of customers from COVID-19. Other than monetary aid, we also aim to provide online tutoring aid to young students whose learning experience has been interrupted by this disease. We hope that we can count on your support!


HOW YOU CAN HELP

Please consider donating to Health, Help, and Happiness, which is currently in the process of becoming a nonprofit! As a community, we need to help those in need. Many people are struggling right now, and if we have the ability to do something, we should. Your donations will go a long way in helping someone else! You can also help us spread the word about donating to Help, Health, and Happiness. 

Please let me know at 650-492-410 or @_mirbahri if you have any questions!
