COVID-19 NYC Family Fund

by #BStrong and @globalempowermentmission.

  • The NYC Public School System serves over one million children every day. Of those 1M kids, NYC Schools provide free breakfast and lunch to 700,000 children daily. 114,000 of them are living in shelters.

  • GEM has designed this program to give cash cards to low-income parents in New York City who are struggling to support their children’s expenses during these coronavirus-related school closures.

  • As concerned parents who couldn’t sit by and watch other families suffer during this time of uncertainty, Krista Rizzo and Carly Snyder made the decision to do something about it. The question of how to help was on the forefront of their minds as this epidemic became a pandemic. Carly and Krista partnered with Global Empowerment Mission (GEM) and #bStrong for this initiative. Through that, the COVID 19 Family Fund was born.

GEM is raising money to fund this mission.
