Special COVID-19 Appeal From Soroptimist of Borrego Springs

Friends, one of Soroptimist’s core principles is to be a source of assistance for single moms. These women are vulnerable once their income stream is cut off, due to layoffs, etc. They can become destitute at an alarming rate.

We are supporting local single moms with local grocery store certificates. Our goal is to give each mom a $100 gift card to Desert Pantry and a $100 gift card to Center Market. This will enable them to put food on the table for themselves and their families. We have widened our circle to ask if you can financially support us in this initiative.

Unfortunately, we cancelled a few critical fundraisers due to COVID-19 and yet, we are committed to giving $12,000 in scholarships to our senior girls in June of this year. If you can donate any amount to helping our community’s vulnerable single moms, we would be so appreciative.

Donate to Help Single Moms Through Covid-19 Assistance

We are all Soroptimist Strong and with help from supporters and donors like you, we are still making dreams come true for women and girls. Thank you for your partnership! Please stay safe and healthy!
