Mira Vista Families Fund

The Mira Vista Office Staff are raising money on behalf of the Mira Vista K-8 School in Richmond, CA to help support our school community during this time of great need.  We have set an initial goal of $2,500, and may adjust this depending on need.  The sooner we raise this money, the sooner we can get started helping our families.

The ongoing coronavirus shelter-in-place has placed an undue financial burden on many of our MV families, and we are hoping to provide a much needed supplement to their ongoing necessities.  Generally speaking, Government assistance programs such as WIC/Food Stamps prohibit the purchase of many crucial household items such as soap, shampoo, toothpaste, detergent, dish soap, feminine hygiene products, razors, toothbrushes, and other items, including food, if determined to be necessary.  Likewise, many of our families are ineligible for these programs for various reasons, and so we may end up providing food assistance to some families as well.

With the money we raise, we will purchase and assemble household supply packs to be given away or delivered to those of our families who need them, by volunteer staff.  We hope to be able to fund a continuing project that may last through the Summer months, depending on the general (and ever-changing) circumstances surrounding the coronavirus issue and the shelter-in-place order.

Our friends at GO Public Schools have graciously helped us to kick off this fundraising event with a cash grant of $500.  Please help us to add to this so that we can help our children and their families.  Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated, and all of the money raised will go directly towards helping our MV families.  Please consider donating more than once, as it appears the economic impact of this situation may last for several months or more.

All of our efforts and expenditures from this fundraiser will be done transparently and announced via fundraiser updates.

Thank you for your support,

Alma, Adela and Marilyn
