Lloyd EcoDistrict, the Lloyd Enhanced Services District, and the LCA/Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods, donated $9,000 in just a few short weeks to support @R2DToo. My office, impressed by this effort, contributed matching funds bringing the total funds raised to $18,000 in contributions and pledges.
We want to keep the momentum going and encourage the larger community to match the $18,000 the group has collectively raised so far. An additional $18,000 will fund R2DToo's operating expenses for the full year and keep them afloat while they respond to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
I am grateful for this exceptional community support, and have elected to match these efforts with a one-time contribution from my office funds. The intended use of these funds is towards utility payments, emergency food, or other supplies needed to keep R2DToo's members, volunteers and overnighters safe and healthy during this public health crisis.
