The Issue: Financial Issues Sparked by Sudden Crises
When a family experiences a unexpected crisis, such as an illness or death, the resulting turmoil can affect every facet of their lives, making everyday tasks such as purchasing groceries overwhelming and financially difficult. Receiving assistance to satisfy their basic needs can help reduce these families’ financial burdens, allowing them to better cope with the crisis at hand.
The Campaign: Funding Groceries for Families in Need
If 30 people donate $10 to this Grassroots campaign, then Westchase Charitable Foundation can fund a week’s worth of groceries for four families facing an illness or tragedy. Each additional $75 raised will fund a week’s worth of groceries for another family. Having a supply of nutritious groceries at home can help reduce families’ overall stress while they cope with a tragedy.
Westchase Charitable Foundation
The Westchase Charitable Foundation (WCF) supports families in the Tampa Bay area and beyond who are faced with an unexpected illness or tragedy. Through fundraising events such as golf outings and Christmas parades, it raises money to help ease families’ financial burden and emotional strain. Since its inception in 2004, WCF has hand-delivered more than $110,000 in checks to help cover expenses such as medical bills, rent, and groceries.
