A global threat like COVID-19 touches every person on the planet, including those whom OCPSA serves. The children, adults, and families we work with are particularly vulnerable to the effects of a crisis like this one; as are the amazing volunteers who deliver our programs on the frontlines of healthcare, social services, and education.
Like all of you, the OCPSA family is striving to meet the social and economic challenges presented by this outbreak, but its impact is taking a toll. As this pandemic continues, non-profits across the country face the most unprecedented financial challenge of their time. OCPSA is no exception.
Now more than ever, we need the support of our communities, donors, and partners to ensure that OCPSA will continue to be here for the people who count on us when they need us the most!
Please consider supporting OCPSA today. Your donation to this special COVID-19 Crisis Relief Appeal will help OCPSA respond to the needs of our communities as they arise over the coming weeks and months.
We believe that generosity has the power to unite and heal us in good times and bad. While we maintain our physical distance from others, let’s come together to help the charities and causes we care about. Together we will overcome the COVID crisis!
Thank you from the bottom of our heart for your generosity during this difficult time.
Please be safe and stay well!
