The Alexandria Community Alliance has raised $12,670 in a GoFundMe campaign for Alexandria families impacted by COVID-19.
The nonprofit was formed shortly after the pandemic struck Alexandria, and is reportedly helping more than 50 families a week with bare necessities like food, toiletries and cleaning supplies.
“Many of these families are unemployed and not eligible for benefits,” the GoFundMe organizers wrote on the GoFundMe page. “We are helping to provide supplies that other organizations aren’t.”
The Alliance was originally created as the Alexandrians Supporting Alexandrians During COVID Facebook page. The group says it needs more donations.
“Once we deliver supplies we check back in with families every other week to see if they need anything else,” according to the Alliance. “There are lots of families that we can help with a regular delivery of groceries and supplies.”
