At the A Dollar A Day Foundation, we are acutely aware of the effects that the COVID-19 pandemic is having on our frontline service workers, health care providers, emergency first responders and others. These professionals are risking their own health and well-being to help their communities. On a daily basis, they are enduring unimaginable physical, mental and emotional hardship among many other challenges on our behalf. These individuals collectively will become the teams responsible for guiding our nation to recovery in the weeks and months to come.
They need our help.
A Dollar A Day’s guiding principles inspire us to identify the need and provide support to credible and innovative organizations nationwide that have proven experience delivering frontline mental health services. We will stand at the ready to help these everyday heroes where and when they need it most and we are asking for your help in doing so. Your support of A Dollar A Day’s COVID-19 Relief Fund will ensure that the people who are giving everything of themselves for you, your family, and your community today will have the support they need to get back to their own lives and help you get back to yours tomorrow.
