Suddenly Hungry: RIVER FUND Feature Video at Robin Hood's 2020 Relief Fund Benefit

The Jaramillo Family came to RIVER FUND during week three of the COVID-19 shut down. Laid off as a result of the pandemic, this formerly stable family found itself suddenly without enough money to continue buying the food they needed. RIVER FUND has supported them with weekly groceries and with an Emergency Hardship Cash Grant to help them make it though this difficult period.
