On Wednesday July 7th, UFW Foundation in partnership with Revive Community Church, distributed approximately 250 gift cards valued at $25 each to the community of El Rio and surrounding neighborhoods. There was an overwhelming amount of support as we easily reached over 500 in attendance. And although we had to cut off at 250, families and individuals kept on pouring in trying to receive some type of financial support and resources.
This only indicates and confirms one thing, that there is still great need out there and we must all continue to make a difference and have an impact on those underserved and underprivileged families.
On site was also Logrando Bienestar, a program under the supervision of Sandra Tovar, from Ventura County Behavioral Health providing resources and printed material on mental health.
We would like to extend our sincere appreciation to UFW and Jose Del Rio for thinking of our church and surrounding communities for this special give away. In this time of continued and increased uncertainty and great need, it is refreshing and humbling to be able to bless those in need.
