Uplift NYC COVID-19 Emergency Care Relief Fund

The word "quarantine" is derived from the Italian word "quarantina" meaning "40 days".  Over the next 40 days, Uplift NYC needs your help to raise at least $40,000 to support and expand our COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund for our neighbors in need.

Established in 2014, Uplift NYC is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt not-for-profit organization providing low-income youth and their families with access to key resources such as educational, health, cultural, and legal aid services.  

Given the impact of COVID-19 on our working class, people of color, and immigrant communities, we launched our COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund to help alleviate the emergency food and care needs of our neighbors in Washington Heights/Inwood, Harlem and the Bronx. 

Over the past two weeks, we have purchased food and cleaning supplies, packaged 97 culturally-connected care packages serving over 450 people, and delivered each package door-to-door while taking the proper precautions at each step.  

Be part of the solution – join us in weathering this storm, together, with dignity and love by donating $50, $100, $200 or anything you can. 

We will update this page throughout our campaign. Again, we extend our sincere gratitude and thanks for your continuous support!
