It’s always great to end the month with beautiful weather and good news. Thanks to the good folks at Reliant, four nonprofits that have served as critical resource centers during the COVID-19 weeks will share in Reliant’s $100,000 donation.
- $25,000 to GRACE in Grapevine, which has focused efforts during COVID-19 on its food pantry, community clinic, senior services, transitional housing and client services, increasing the number of families served by six times compared to last year.
- $25,000 to Metrocrest Services, which saw a 293% increase in pantry visits during the month of April and a 268% increase in rental assistance requests.
- $25,000 to Mission Arlington, an organization focused on the emergency needs of families who have lost jobs or have reduced hours during the pandemic. Since March, the nonprofit has seen a 30% increase in assistance given to the community.
- $25,000 to Network of Community Ministries, which is providing food (including food pantry pick-up, weekend meal boxes to RISD schools and senior home deliveries), housing assistance, and virtual job coaching services during the COVID-19 response within the 14 ZIP codes that make up Richardson ISD in Dallas County.
This donation follows Reliant’s other recent contributions of $100,000 to support Baylor Scott And White’s remote monitoring of COVID-19 positive patients, as well as $25,000 to the MedStar Mobile Healthcare Foundation in support of DFW-area first responders.
According to Reliant President Elizabeth Killinger, “Reliant is dedicated to helping our fellow Texans during this uncertain time and making sure our communities have access to the basic necessities they critically need. We are incredibly moved by the work local nonprofits are doing to help care for our neighbors, and we are honored to help light the way by supporting these crucial services.”
