With our hearts in the Sunnyside neighborhood, Semillas del Desierto has established a fund to provide modest cash assistance for families who have children attending Killip Elementary School. This fund will be used to provide a $50 cash distribution or gift card - as funds are available - to Killip families who have been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
For families who are balancing the stress of reduced or eliminated work hours as well as children being out of school, our hope is that this resource could serve to help with items such as purchasing phone minutes, paying utilities, buying groceries and medication, or accessing school and activity supplies for their children.
Your generous contributions - whether $5 or $500 - will allow us to provide this cash assistance to more families and to hopefully increase the amount we are able to give. Thank you for your consideration and for showing your love for our Sunnyside community!
Funds will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis until they are exhausted. Thank you for your interest and for being our neighbor!
