The Adaptations for a New Normal

This year has been difficult for everyone. A pandemic threatens our lives and our way of life and those Family Giving Tree serves face the highest risk. Those who work on the front lines as essential workers, families, individuals facing homelessness, and seniors; all those with limited access to proper PPE to use and refill stock.

That is why FGT is working to provide Essential Health Kits with each wished-for gift for 40,000 children, adults, and seniors who have been affected by financial hardships and are particularly vulnerable to the COVID pandemic. With at least 11% of those we serve experiencing homelessness, health kits are crucial in providing access to the items that keep them safe and restocking those same items.

One of the recipients speaks to the crucial nature of Essential Health Kits during a pandemic:

“We’re located in the Tenderloin and it is a dense neighborhood, so having clean hands, healthy teeth, and masks for seniors who are the at-risk/more susceptible to COVID-19 is important. It also minimizes the spread and helps our community. Care packages are important. It’s a matter of income and for these seniors, the majority of their expenses go to food and rent, therefore not much left over for “hygiene items.”



Please note that if you would like to continue supporting FGT, please become a monthly supporter.
