Help us in our response to COVID-19


As the COVID-19 situation continues to unfold and the economic impact of job loss and social distancing worsen, the Cultural Wellness Center is here to support our community. During this uncertain time, we can be a resource to many individuals and families, particularly doubly at risk members in cultural communities and people with already pressing socioeconomic challenges in addition to our elders.

If you would like to help families in need, please consider a financial contribution to the Cultural Wellness Center. Then, we can distribute it to the people in our circle, individuals of all backgrounds.

Please note that we do not have staff resources or storage space to collect other types of donations. If you’d like to contribute by donating goods, please direct those to your local food shelf or other community partners.
