ADRN launches new relief fund

Thursday, April 16, 2020 by Tai Moses

The Austin Disaster Relief Network has been busy lately, but not too busy to launch its new Covid-19 Relief Fund in an effort to get some help to those who have lost jobs and income due to the pandemic. Daniel Geraci, executive director of ADRN, said in a news release, “Through our survivor hotline and prayer hotline, we’re hearing from people who are experiencing fear and anxiety caused by lost jobs and income. Families are truly struggling. While our network of churches and volunteers are responding to the emotional and spiritual needs of those impacted, we’re asking Austinites to support their neighbors by making a financial contribution to our Covid-19 Relief Fund.” Money raised will be used for basic needs like food and gas. “We also aim to restore hope through this fund,” Geraci said. “So often, when you contribute to someone’s financial relief, you end up alleviating fear and anxiety they may be experiencing too.” Donate to the fund here.
