WHY DONATE TO REBUILDING TOGETHER SILICON VALLEY?
Last year was a tough year in so many ways for so many people. And Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley could not have made it without the support of so many of YOU:
- YOU stepped up and supported RTSV financially
- YOU volunteered COVID-style at our October Rebuilding Day
- YOU took old RTSV t-shirts and made masks
- YOU made wellness calls to hundreds of our repair recipients
- YOU continued to serve on our Board of Directors and committees, and even completed our 3-year Strategic Planning process via zoom.
YOU make it possible for us to continue providing critical, safety and accessibility repairs for our neighbors in need, especially those who were and continue to be most vulnerable to COVID-19. As we have all been subject to the stay-at-home order, we now know what it’s like for our older adult or disabled homeowners who spend the majority of their time at home. Unfortunately, their homes are often lacking the basic necessities like hot water, heat, and safety modifications needed to move around safely. YOU help us create a safe and healthy space for so many in need.
Even though you may not know it, YOU also hold us accountable as we dive head-first into Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion work, creating a safe space to explore our own implicit biases while at the same time evaluating the work and structure of RTSV and how we can overcome systemic barriers and best serve the community. The attacks on our democracy we witnessed last week as well as the racial inequities they exposed make it clear that we as a nation have so much work ahead. Rebuilding Together Silicon Valley is committed to prioritizing racial equity work and making a difference in the communities we live, work and serve. As a member of the Silicon Valley Council of Nonprofits, we have signed the Nonprofit Racial Equity Pledge—and we invite YOU to join us in living out this pledge.
We value your commitment to our mission of repairing homes, revitalizing communities, and rebuilding lives. Let us continue to build our partnership in 2021—making safe homes and communities for ALL!
