The Community Foundation for Southern Arizona recently announced that an additional $63,000 was granted to five organizations as part of the foundation’s COVID-19 community response grants.

These grants will provide sleeping bags to people experiencing homelessness in the winter, emotional support for local teachers and students, child care for youth, and medical equipment and supplies free of charge to communities in need. Some examples of how the funding will be used are:

With the funding, the Tucson Pima Collaboration to End Homelessness will purchase 1,000 cold weather sleeping bags for distribution through community agencies that provide services for people experiencing unsheltered homelessness.

PMHDC Southwest Medical Aid will provide essential medical supplies to organizations and communities in need, including Southern Arizona’s tribal nations.
