Featured Fundraiser of the Day

Queens Mom's setup a COVID 19- Community Drive
$100 raised out of $1,000 goal

I am part of a community coalition called Our Children's Voice. As part of this coalition of parents we are doing a collection for Corona, Elmhurst and Jackson Heights in partnership with Elmhurst Community Partners. This organization is currently feeding around 600 families in a small pantry located in Corona. They are really struggling because the demand they have is over their current capacity and need help.

We are collecting funds to buy groceries for one week for a family in need. The cost of these groceries will be $100 per family and will include the following :

Milk, eggs, bread, cheese, meat, rice, beans, vegetables, fruits, and more

Families that are being assisted with this fundraiser don't receive government help but live and work in Queens, NY,
