Help Us Provide Hope and Support to Those in Need

May 14, 2020 — Mission of Deeds is planning a phased reopening. Phase 1 will be to service those individuals and families whose appointments we were forced to postpone when we temporarily closed on March 16th to maintain everyone’s safety. These clients will be serviced by a small number of staff members, strictly adhering to physical distancing and other public health measures. Please continue to check our website for information regarding future phases that will include a timetable for gradual reopening to the general public and welcoming back our wonderful volunteers.

We know that health and food charities have been on the front lines of response to the COVID-19 crisis and have needed all forums to communicate about their crucial work. Thus, Mission of Deeds has chosen to remain in the background. However, as we plan to reopen, we are preparing to assist many families and individuals who have been deeply impacted by loss of income due to the pandemic. This will be in addition to helping the postponed clients, and other clients, who were living without basic items even before the crisis hit. We applaud continued support of health and food charities. We also want our supporters to know that it won’t be long before Mission of Deeds will need funds to provide free beds, furniture and household essentials to more people in need than ever before.
