Boulder’s Emergency Family Assistance Association is celebrating its success in the wake of setting a $400,000 fundraising goal announced April 6, to help people who are experiencing hardships during the coronavirus pandemic.
According to a news release, a Boulder family put forward a $200,000 match to help get EFAA there. With that, along with others’ contributions, the nonprofit has met its goal.
More than 600 people came together with emergency food and financial assistance, enabling EFAA to distribute over 3,000 grab-and-go food bags and provide $187,500 in emergency rental assistance in just three weeks’ time, the release stated.
As the economic effects of COVID-19 further impact the Boulder Valley community, EFAA’s plans are to continue to provide critical support to those who need it most, according to the release, especially for those most affected or unable to receive other kinds of assistance.
