What can I do to help?

This is a question we are hearing a lot here at Hawke’s Bay Foundation during the COVID-19 crisis. Everyone’s lives have been turned upside down by this – but some far more than others.

As your local Community Foundation, we have answered the call by setting up an Emergency Response Fund to help those hit hardest in Hawke’s Bay.

“While we don’t yet know how the effect of this pandemic will be felt across vulnerable sectors in Hawke’s Bay, we do know that job losses, social isolation and strain on resources will see local charities under extreme pressure,” Hawke’s Bay Foundation Chair, Giles Pearson, says.

“They will need our help more than ever before and this fund is a way we can be ready to help quickly.”

For those people stuck at home doing their bit to combat COVID-19, while still wanting to assist their communities, this is a way you can make a difference. We’re all in this together. Let’s all help Hawke’s Bay when it needs us most. Please donate today.
