Haven’t visited us in a while? Here’s what you might have missed.
1. Through Dando la Mano Fund, an immigrant relief fund, we helped out all of those in our community who were both affected by Covid-19 and were left out of any government aid. To date, LUPE has issued over 350 VISA cards of $250 each.
2. We launched a campaign addressing the very evident social injustice of the digital divide in our colonias. As Covid-19 revealed, the lack of internet access is a pressing issue in our colonias because very-limited-to-nonexistent access significantly affects colonia children’s school participation and performance. It also denies any resources and information that are currently limited to a virtual world.
3. We also partnered up with Justice4Women to distribute to community members over 1,000 hygiene and household cleaning care packages of P&G products either via drive-thru distributions hosted at our LUPE offices or by delivery to hard to reach areas. Help us increase our impact by donating.
