COVID-19 Relief by Chinmaya Mission Austin community #BoundToEachOther

The COVID-19 pandemic and its devastating impact has taken a terrible toll globally. It is particularly sad that our country has not been spared either, despite its economic might. 30 million Americans have filed initial unemployment claims since mid-March and all 50 states reported a rise in unemployment, with widespread layoffs reported in almost all sectors of the economy.

While all of us feel the impact of the novel coronavirus, the burden falls most heavily on those who have been marginalized in our society. Restaurant workers, gig workers and other hourly workers are facing unprecedented economic hardship from the coronavirus crisis. Now it’s our turn to serve them.

Towards this end, as Chinmaya Mission Austin community, we are raising funds specifically for the following three organizations:

1. HC4A Hindu Charities for America’s mission is to Bridge Income Disparity Through Education in the spirit of “Serve where you Live”. Founded in 2010, HC4A, helps all economically disadvantaged students by donating school supplies and providing vocational scholarships. https://www.hc4a.org

2. Refugee Services of Texas: Founded in 1978, RST provides services to hundreds of refugees, asylees, survivors of human trafficking, and related vulnerable populations from over 30 different countries of origin each year. https://www.rstx.org

3. Central Texas Food Bank: A leader in the fight against hunger for nearly 38 years - The Central Texas Food Bank is the largest hunger-relief charity in Central Texas. https://www.centraltexasfoodbank.org

We request generous donations made out to CORDUSA specifically tagged for the COVID-19 Relief efforts. Please note that with CORD USA, 100% of your donations goes directly to those in need independent of their race, color, immigration status, age, sex, religion or disability. You will also be able to take advantage of your employers matching funds when you donate through CORDUSA and double your impact. Let us rise to the occasion and make a difference during these extraordinary times!
