Donate to Lakewood Mutual Aid’s Rolling Cash Fund
The Lakewood Mutual Aid group started a rolling community cash fund. They hope to raise at least $4,000 to provide twenty $200 grants to Lakewood neighbors. They will prioritize applications from neighbors that don’t have access to state/federal support (like stimulus checks and/or unemployment benefits), those who risk losing housing, and senior citizens and families with children. Find out more info and donate at their website here.
Donate to North Durham Mutual Aid Fund
North Durham Mutual Aid has been coordinating deliveries of food to 10-12 families in the neighborhood who need food support on a weekly basis. Neighbors are supporting by doing grocery pick up and delivery. This fund is to cover the cost of grocery purchases for volunteers who need to be reimbursed when they purchase and deliver food for neighbors in need. To give $ to the fund, you can send money directly to our Paypal account: email@example.com. (The name will show up as Allison SwaimNG. Be sure to select “send to friends/family” to avoid the transaction fee. All money donated will go directly towards purchasing food for neighbors. If we have additional funds, those will go directly to support other mutual aid efforts driven by neighbors’ needs, including support with rent and bills.)
Donate to DSA’s COVID-19 Mutual Aid Relief Fund
The NC Piedmont Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and Carrboro Mutual Aid have partnered to create a disaster relief fund for families suffering during these hard times. Money given to this fund will be used to support workers facing serious disruption because they’ve been kept home without pay. Any remaining funds will be used to support relief efforts for stricken individuals who cannot leave their homes for food or other necessities. If any funds remain after the COVID-19 disaster, they will be used for future disaster relief efforts.
