Taking an umbrella approach, PCCF's Community Response Fund supports health and human services nonprofits in greater Park City that are handling cases related to the impact of Covid-19. In other words, this fund is designed to help ensure that basic needs—food, housing, and health care—are being met. It offers flexible resources to organizations in our area working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by coronavirus and the economic consequences of the outbreak, such as residents without health insurance and/or access to sick days, people with limited English language proficiency, health care and gig economy workers, and communities of color. The first phase of rapid-response grants will increase resilience by addressing the economic impact of reduced and lost work due to the broader Covid-19 outbreak, and the immediate needs of economically vulnerable populations caused by related closures. parkcitycf.org/communityresponsefund
Nonprofits already receiving some support through this program:
People’s Health Clinic to help support staff to manage patient flow at the door and supplies like masks, wipes, hand sanitizer, shoe covers, and disposable gowns being used at a higher rate.
Eats Park City to help support their Backpack program through which they purchase food for Summit County children (families likely impacted by loss of income) to have over the weekend. Normally they purchase enough for 350 recipients, and that is now moving to 800.
Christian Center of Park City to help support key programs, including their Food Pantry and Basic Needs Assistance program.
Support local businesses
Restaurants and small businesses are operating under new protocols, but many will welcome you with open arms (albeit six feet apart and with face coverings). Check out parkcityrestaurants.com to see who's offering curbside, take-out, and dine-in—and check with your favorite shops to see how they're operating these days. Starting Sunday, June 14, Main Street will be pedestrian-only from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. through September 6.
