COVID Response Fund Weekly Update April 21, 2020

From all of us at the Tustin Community Foundation, thank you
for your unwavering commitment to our community. The Tustin COVID-19 Response
Fund is rapidly deploying resources to community-based organizations that are
feeding local families and seniors most affected by the coronavirus
crisis.  I am pleased to report that
there is a Tustin organization distributing food every day of the week
now.  Unfortunately, the need continues
to increase on a daily basis.


Your generous donation has already enabled us to financially
support the following organizations feeding Tustin:

  • Families Together of OC
  • Grace Harbor Church / The Giving Tree / Fresh Start Charity
  • Salvation Army Tustin Ranch Church
  • Sunday Supper
  • Tustin Family & Youth Center

We have also passed on donations earmarked to purchase games
for the children at the OC Rescue Mission and children's books that Kids READ!
will distribute along with the food donations at several of the above


The Tustin Community Foundation is in talks with city,
school and community leaders and local nonprofit organizations on a coordinated
philanthropic effort to support our community during this unprecedented
crisis.  As our donations increase, so
will our ability to meet future COVID related community needs.


Please stay safe and healthy. Thank you for your support as
we adjust to this rapidly-evolving situation and continue to use your donation
wisely, where it will make the biggest impact.


Most sincerely,

Erin Nielsen

Executive Director
