Dear Friends and Supporters,
How do you quarantine at home when you have no home? This is the question all of us at SOS are facing every day. COVID-19 and its impact on people experiencing homelessness is a dire and evolving situation and we need your help.
We know you care as much as we do about keeping everyone in our community safe. Our shelters are close to capacity and we are doing everything humanly possible to comply with distance and good hygiene practices. As such, Shelters of Saratoga has initiated a rapid response plan for this crisis and WE NEED YOUR HELP to protect all community members.
We are asking the community to step forward and help us raise $150,000 by April 15, 2020 so that we can:
AS COVID-19 continues to bring uncertainty and unrest to many around the globe, our community is responding with love and compassion. We desperately need the resources to continue providing food and shelter to our most vulnerable neighbors. Our doors MUST remain open. This is not a choice. We need your help now more than ever.
Will you help us save lives right now?
Thank you so much for your support.
Karen A. Gregory
Thank you to our corporate and foundation partners
