RELIEF FOR FAMILIES AFFECTED BY THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN
The current government shutdown has left hundreds of thousands of federal workers without pay and jeopardized funding for critical programs like the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP). Lower East Siders who are federal workers or rely on SNAP and similar federal programs must now figure out alternate ways to make ends meet.
Educational Alliance is committed to helping families fill in gaps left by the current shutdown and lack of federal funding. By making a donation, you will allow our community centers to redouble and expand our efforts, such as our free food pantries and meals. Every dollar donated through this page will provide direct relief to families on the Lower East Side.
Please help your fellow New Yorkers affected by the shutdown by giving as generously as you are able. On behalf of every member of the Educational Alliance community, thank you for your support!
