Thank you to everyone who donated to our #MRNVgivingtuesday fundraiser. Together we were able to raise $1,375!
As part of our #MRNVgivingtuesday we went LIVE on Facebook on December 1st, 2020. We were joined by our member leader Emma sharing her personal story on how the pandemic has not only affected her work but also her health. Emma, like most undocumented working mothers, has been hit the hardest this year, and being ineligible to receive any federal relief makes it difficult to pay utilities and rent bills as they continue to stack up. Emma was one of the 385 immigrant families MRNV was fortunate to help with direct cash assistance this year and we want to help more families like hers in Nevada.
Watch our live fundraiser to see our journey through 2020, see our members in action, our small businesses that have helped us along the way, and important resources from the Governor’s Offices of New Americans.
Even though our#MRNVgivingtuesday fundraiser is over, we will continue to collect donations for our Nevada Immigrant Relief Fund. You can still make a donation online here.
#GivingTuesday is a national day of giving where folks across the country tap into their hearts and wallets as they donate to non-profits making a change in their communities. Nevada has thousands of nonprofits, but Make the Road Nevada (MRNV) is a nonprofit that has made remarkable progress over the past 3 years since our launch from occupational licensures for our immigrant community and earned paid sick days for working Nevadans. We have worked hard and continue to work hard for our community even during the global pandemic. This Giving Tuesday happening December 2nd, you can be a part of the change we continue to make in Nevada as we set a goal to raise $3,000 for our immigrant community.
Immigrants are valuable members of our society! They are teachers, first responders, grocery workers, store clerks, custodians, friends, family members, and our neighbors. Yet most are excluded from any federal financial relief as they continue to work during the pandemic. They put themselves and their families at risk every day to provide during this holiday season.
This year’s #MRNVGivingTuesday goal is to raise $3,000 to help alleviate our immigrant community’s financial burdens. MRNV has been fortunate enough to have helped 383 families in direct cash assistance during the pandemic so far thanks to people like you who have supported through donations. But we know with your kind donation we can help even more! While you gather around with your loved ones this holiday season, help bring joy to another local family.
