The Hackensack Lakes Area Community Foundation announces the Hackensack-Backus Relief Fund.

The foundation is ready to meet critical needs in the Hackensack and Backus area because of the sweeping and unprecedented effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hosted by the Initiative Foundation on GiveMN, this fund will be used to makes grants to nonprofits and local units of government to address the economic impacts of reduced and lost work resulting from the outbreak; to meet immediate needs of economically vulnerable populations caused by coronavirus-related closures; and to respond to increased demands placed on stressed social support systems. Over the long-term, the fund can support recovery needs that will inevitably arise.

Gifts to this fund can support services that help those whose jobs are affected or will be affected in the near future, help those who face food scarcity and help those whose household utilities or housing may be affected, and more.
