Summary: Provide gift card care packages to single parents in Larimer County who are participants of Project Self-Sufficiency


Project Self-Sufficiency is a non-profit organization in Larimer County that assists low-income, single parents in their efforts to achieve economic independence and become free from community and government assistance while building and maintaining strong, healthy families.

In the wake of COVID-19 and the resulting business closures and economic impact, Project Self-Sufficiency is in need of emergency funding to support its single-parent families as many were laid off or saw reduced work hours from their only source of income.

To date, Project Self-Sufficiency has provided financial support to families through gas and grocery cards, utility and rent assistance, as well as technical resources to families unable to complete their children's distance learning and those unable to continue with their own online learning expectations. The organization expects an even greater financial need as families deplete any reserves they may have, and experience further reductions in work hours.

The funds from this grant will be used to purchase gift cards for items like groceries, gas and school supplies (as defined by the organization in relation to greatest need) and will be packaged by members of the Rotary Club of Fort Collins, along with letters of encouragement written by our club volunteers, and then distributed to the single parents at their homes by our club volunteers (with social distancing practices in place).
