UPDATE 10/01/20 :
We have moved our fundraising to Open Collective.
Donations on this page will be closed.
Please visit here to contribute: https://opencollective.com/irving-park-mutual-aid/
By migrating we gain the following advantages:
- Every expense (e.g. financial support, grocery support) can be now directly viewed
- It is now much more transparent how much funds we have left.
- We use a fiscal hosting option where your monetary contributions are held by a 501.3(c) organization
- this decentralizes how funds are managed.
Thank you again for your contributions!
Friends, the Coronavirus is changing everything. But what hasn't changed is our sense of unity and solidarity and community with one another. In that spirit, this Fund is intended to help out folks that are financially affected by Covid-19. We hope you can contribute and spread the word.
We are the Irving Park Mutual Aid Network, we are part of a city wide coalition trying to bring support and relief to our neighbors during this crisis. We have volunteers in every corner of Irving Park who are making deliveries to and checking up on our neighbors in need. Sign up here to become a volunteer or here to request assistance .
We know these are difficult times and we realize that many of these needs will be financial due to people being laid off, or unable to work. We recognize that we will not be able to meet every financial need, but we will do what we can with what we have. This money is available for anyone in our neighborhood who asks, we will not be vetting requests. We have to come together and trust each other during this difficult time.
Thank you for your support.
Love and Solidarity
