Will you donate today to support our emergency response to provide critical services to our neighbors experiencing homelessness? https://miriamskitchen.org/helpnow/
Your tax-deductible donation enables us to provide immediate support and adapt programs as news around the coronavirus evolves. Miriam’s Kitchen is just 1 of 4 remaining homeless service organizations providing food. Your support matters, but you don’t have to take my word for it:
Thank you to the 136 individuals who have already donated to emergency response efforts. Your early support enabled us to rent restrooms with sinks, purchase to-go containers to move meal services outside and take other steps needed to keep our community safe.
We are grateful to have a caring community that includes more than 12,000 neighbors who give back as volunteers, advocates, and donors—making our mission possible.
We’re calling on you now to step up and support our guests experiencing homelessness—who need your support now more than ever. Please donate today at https://miriamskitchen.org/helpnow/
Thanks for standing with us during this time of uncertainty. Your support means so much.
