This initiative was introduced to HFCC by Anabelle Ragsag and for charitable status support, Rose Labid of Jesus Is Alive Community, extended to us their charitable number. What was this money intended for? This was to distribute as form of “Ayuda” to our senior community members, 65 years and over who have some form of disability and house-bound due to the grip of covid-19 pandemic.
A financial grant from the Hamilton Community Foundation in the amount of $5000.00 made this initiative possible. As with any program there were administrative cost involved. Final amount for distribution was $ 3800.00,distributed to 35 recipients which turned out to be $108.00 each.
