Colorado Teen Raises Over $3K for Resident Relief Foundation

The Resident Relief Foundation has been fortunate to receive thousands of dollars in contributions from caring and kindhearted donors over the last month. One such remarkable act of giving came from a Denver teen named Rena, who raised over $3,000 for Residential Relief Foundation as her Bat Mitzvah service project. “I want to help those impacted by COVID-19,” said Rena, “because I have not been as negatively impacted as those who could lose their homes.” Rena says she was inspired by the teachings of her community “to soften our hearts and open our hands towards those in need.”

The volume of inquiries and applications for rental assistance that we receive continues to grow exponentially as a result of the pandemic-related housing crisis. Over the 4th of July weekend alone, we saw dozens of applications.

Your support can help prevent more needless evictions. Please consider donating to the Resident Relief Initiative by visiting our website.
Resident Relief Success Story

Denis and his family were recently on the verge of eviction. While undergoing treatment for Multiple Sclerosis, he found that his disability benefits would not cover all of the family’s rent and regular living expenses. That’s when the Resident Relief Foundation stepped in to help.

In Their Words

 

“Due to the coronavirus pandemic causing millions of people to lose their jobs, I am unable to work and haven’t earned a penny since March. My savings have dried up, and I can no longer afford rent. Without assistance I’m afraid I’ll become homeless very soon.”


These are the kind of desperate pleas that we hear every day from residents affected by the housing crisis. Next week we are launching a social media campaign to tell the stories of residents who are enduring pandemic-related hardships in their own words. Our hope is to break down barriers and relay the impact of the current housing crisis as we see it through their testimonials.

Follow us @ResidentRelief on Twiter and @ResidentReliefFoundation on LinkedIn and Facebook and look for the hashtags #InTheirWords and #ResidentRelief to help spread the message and bring awareness to the needs of so many Americans today.

Recent tax changes allow all taxpayers— including those who do not itemize—the ability to deduct their donations this year. The CARES Act passed by Congress in March in response to COVID-19 allows individual taxpayers to deduct charitable cash donations of up to $300 on their 2020 federal tax return, even if they take the standard deduction.

Other important tax law changes provided by the CARES Act include higher deduction limits on cash gifts for both individuals and corporations alike, and waiving penalties for using retirement funds to cover expenses related to treatment of the coronavirus.
