To apply for Covid-19 grant:

The novel coronavirus (Covid-19) has changed all of our daily lives and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Because of the pandemic, many of our friends and neighbors are in precarious financial situations. A group of community organizations including the Kent Community Foundation are working together to identify needs in the community and how we can best fill those needs.

What are we doing?

Now during this national emergency, providing meals, money and other resources to our neighbors is critical. It needs to happen immediately. We worked to identify organizations who are already on the ground and are deploying resources quickly.

Please join us by donating to one of the following organizations :

Kent Food Bank Donate ; Covington Storehouse Donate; NW Harvest Donate. Give what you can afford, whether it’s $5 or $500. Every dollar matters.
