The Del Ray Citizen’s Association on Wednesday approved an allocation of $2,500 to ALIVE! and $2,500 to Casa Chirilagua.
More than 30 DRCA members participated in the monthly meeting on Wednesday night, which was held via Zoom.
“We wanted to really do something major and significant to help with on COVID-19 relief for the charities in this area,” DRCA President Virginia Bush said at the meeting. “This is an unprecedented threat to our community, and I think it’s really important that we do everything we can to support the people who are losing their jobs, losing their businesses and losing their homes as much as we can.”
The association is asking other neighborhood associations to match them with a COVID-19 fundraising challenge with $2,500 or $5,000 donations.
Additionally, a number of community events in Del Ray have been canceled or postponed, including the popular Del Ray Music Festival, the Well Ray fitness festival and the Homes and Garden Tour.
