At Auntie Na's Village, giving back is what we do! We believe in a world where we know our neighbors, we take care of each other, and we lift each other up.
This #GivingTuesday show us some love and support our village as it continues to grow! Over the past few months, the city of Detroit has been a Covid-19 hotspot. The resulting shutdowns and economic collapse has deeply impacted the most vulnerable in our city. To meet our community's needs, Auntie Na's House has stepped up our game! We have continued to sustain and maintain our community and expanded our programs in the face of unprecedented challenges .
Since mid-March, Auntie Na's Village has been delivering food boxes to families in Detroit. Prior to Covid-19 we gave out 15-20 food boxes once a week. To address the skyrocketing rates of food insecurity in the city we ramped up our food box program and even created a delivery service to keep our community safe! With the help of mutual aid networks and volunteers we were able to scale up the program to over 400 deliveries a week!
As the pandemic rages on, those families are counting on us to get food consistently. Often Auntie Na's Village is the only option a family might have.
Please Donate this #GivingTuesday to sustain our Pandemic Food Delivery program, our organization, our staff, and our Village.
Please consider becoming a Sustaining Donor, and giving monthly, to keep our Village alive and thriving through whatever storm we face.
Thank you very much for your generosity!
