Thank you too all who joined with us on Tuesday, May 5, 2020 for #GivingTuesdayNow in partnership with the Brooklyn Community Foundation’s #BrooklynGives for COVID-19 Relief campaign to encourage Brooklynites to “Give Where You Live” during this critical time.
During this ongoing global health crisis, as unemployment rates rise, medical debt grows, future incomes become increasingly uncertain, foreclosures loom, consumer scams escalate, domestic violence rates rise, and more and more of our vulnerable community members consider life planning options, the VLP’s services are more essential than ever.
Your contribution – at any level – to the VLP’s Emergency Response Fund will have an immediate and significant impact on the VLP’s ability to rapidly respond to the growing needs of our community.
