COVID-19 Response

In the midst of instability, it is the vulnerable in our society who are often most affected. We are currently mobilizing to provide supplies to Southern Californian clinics that are responding to the disaster. These supplies include n-95 masks, gloves, isolation gowns, and more. Professionals who are testing for the virus rely on the isolation gowns to safely test individuals without getting sick themselves. GCH is working to ensure that these clinics will have everything they need to operate safely and efficiently. We also will continue to provide food to low-income students throughout Southern California. This is especially necessary at this time because many will be losing the free and reduced meals they typically receive at their school each day. Help us respond to urgent needs throughout Orange and LA Counties. With volunteer groups postponing their services and donors being hesitant, we are asking for your help to support our mission through this difficult season. Together we can ensure that our most vulnerable neighbors continue to receive the food they need and that our partner front line agencies have the protection resources to fulfill their missions.
