Dear Extended PFS Family,
I write to you in a time of great urgency on behalf of the vulnerable individuals and families we support. The situation changes daily, and the community we serve needs your action at this critical time.
Your gift today to the Peninsula Family Service (PFS) COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund will make an immediate impact on the welfare of all of our program participants.
Our neighbors are struggling more than ever because of: job loss, food insecurity, lack of early learning care for our children (ages birth to 5 years old), loneliness and isolation.
With your donation, PFS will distribute gift cards directly to the people we support to purchase food, diapers, clothing, or other essential needs.
We are also responding to our participant needs by:
Implementing an Older Adult Resource and Assistance Hotline (650) 780-7542 to all adults 60+ in San Mateo County
Supporting DriveForward participants (67% have lost their job or hours) with loan payment deferment options. Our Financial Empowerment program has adapted to provide our education workshops online through FDIC Money Smart modules
Partnering with Second Harvest Food Bank to provide food to all our Early Learning families (95% of parents have lost their jobs) and our staff who are in need via a “drive-through” food bank at our Midway Early Learning Center
HELP OUR VULNERABLE COMMUNITY TODAY!
With gratitude for your assistance,
