COVID-19: How You Can Help

 

For over 100 years, EFAA has been Boulder’s community safety-net helping families navigate economic shocks. As the coronavirus moves through our community, demand for our services is increasing with each passing day. Together, we can ensure our most vulnerable community members have the food, resources, and financial assistance they need to navigate this unprecedented moment in history.

Here’s how you can help currently (in order of greatest need):


Financial Support. Cash donations will bolster our ability to respond to increased need and offers the greatest flexibility to direct funds where they are needed most. This is huge at a time when our service response is rapidly changing.

Funds will help:
Increase our supply of nonperishable food for distribution
Scale-up emergency assistance to prevent evictions, access medical care, and prevent utility shut-offs
Allow EFAA to develop innovate solutions to provide essential support that minimizes person-to-person contact, such as food cards

Act: Give online or mail a check to 1575 Yarmouth Avenue Boulder, CO 80304.


Sanitary and household supplies. Like others, we are struggling to procure basic supplies for the families living on our housing sites.

Supplies in greatest need:
Disinfectant wipes / hand sanitizer
Toilet paper
