Donate to assist the undocumented

Hope all of you are staying safe and healthy during this pandemic. 

As you know two of the most impacted groups of this pandemic is our undocumented and asylum seeking families. Many who work in the service and hospitality industry have lost their jobs and do not qualify for unemployment insurance benefits or other government assistance programs. NorCal Resist has been receiving many panic calls from our undocumented and asylum seeking families seeking assistance with paying rent and utilities and groceries. Although we can provide the full rent, we have been helping with a portion of it and a few groceries. We have received over 200 calls from throughout California from Los Angeles, Bay Area, Central Valley, all the way to the Oregon Border.  Although we would like to help everyone, we are an all volunteer organization with a small budget, therefore, limiting assistance to those in the Greater Sacramento Area. In our first week we have assisted over 50 families.

We anticipate the need to double in the next two weeks and want to be ready to help as many families as possible.  Here is where you can help us. 

Please donate to NorCal Resist’s relief fund: https://tinyurl.com/NCRFund

Also, please SHARE it with your networks. All donations are tax deductible. All proceeds raised go towards assisting our most vulnerable families.

If you have any questions, please call me 916-949-9506.

In Solidarity,
