Here is another source of help from our friends at Innovia, Valley Vision and Avista

Valley Vision and Avista have partnered with the Innovia Foundation and many other generous individuals, foundations, and businesses, to establish the COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund. As we navigate the uncertainty and uncharted course of COVID-19, please know that we all are focused on rapidly responding to the most critical needs in our region. We are dedicated to working with our non-profit and community partners to reduce the adverse effects of the pandemic on our communities. Working together, we can help one another, particularly our neighbors in need and our most vulnerable populations.

Innovia’s mission is to ignite generosity that transforms lives and communities.  How urgent this mission seems, in light of the events in our society these past few weeks.

In order to move resources quickly, Innovia is not hosting a formal application process for the COVID-19 Fund. Instead they are seeking feedback from community members and nonprofit organizations via an online survey. The survey can be accessed here: https://covidresponse.questionpro.com/. Please forward this link far and wide to people in your community so we can hear from them.  Responses to the five questions will help Innovia determine the most pressing needs and how to direct resources.
