COVID-19 relief fund donations continue to support the Stamford immigrant population.
Stamford, CT: Building One Community (B1C) receives hundreds of calls a day from a community in distress, and its COVID-19 fund directly supports the most vulnerable populations. Many immigrants have been living paycheck to paycheck, with jobs such as childcare providers, restaurant workers, and delivery drivers. Now their hours have been cut, or worse, their jobs are gone. A large portion of this community has also tested positive for COVID-19. They have been forced to self-isolate with little to no support from anyone. Since many do not have personal savings and aren't able to easily navigate the city's social services without help, they face an extremely chaotic and stressful time.
