REACHING MOTHERS IN NEED DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC

3D Girls, Inc. Emergency Assistance Program

Since March 2020, 3D Girls, Inc. has supported over 500 women and girls who’ve experienced a lack of access to essential materials during the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to strategically provide resources to families impacted by hardships, we have launched an Emergency Assistance Program. The purpose of this initiative is to provide emergency financial assistance and resources to families who are most vulnerable during these times.

Categories of Assistance

The family must provide a copy of the lease or mortgage agreement, copy of past due rent or mortgage statement from rental agency or mortgage company, written hotel nightly or weekly rates, or copy of application fees breakdown. Rental deposit assistance requires an additional statement from the Rental Agency which states that all deposits will be returned to 3D Girls, Inc., not to the renter.

Parents expressed need with essential baby care items due to social-economic factors caused by the Corona Virus outbreak. Within a week’s time, we gathered resources valued at over $2,000 from 10 donors. With 1768 diapers, 420 wipes, and 4675 feminine hygiene products, we were able to produce 40 care packages that provided moms with enough supplies to last them for two weeks.
