Giving Tuesday: December 1

This Giving Tuesday, contribute to our Emergency Relief Fund that continues to support our community members deeply affected by COVID-19. We are distributing translated COVID safety materials, voting materials, and food boxes weekly through our Farm to Families Initiative. These community members include (but are not limited to) non-citizens and undocumented folks.

Our communities of color are underserved with limited language access and social access to survive. Contributing to VAYLA means directly providing fresh produce, food, and resources to Families in New Orleans East who have been unable to receive government aid, resources, and other needs
during this global pandemic.
