Imagine Englewood if
we are Englewood Strong
We, at Imagine Englewood If, want to thank you for supporting the Englewood community during the COVID-19 crisis. The unexpected pandemic and its economic consequences have had a devastating impact on our beloved community, leaving many of our neighbors in great need. In response, we ran the initiative turned Englewood Strong program for 14 weeks from June 1, 2020 - September 4th, 2020.
You stepped up to help when our neighbors could not access local grocery stores, convenience stores, or WIC centers (that provide essential items for young children). We cannot thank you enough for your generosity, which helped us provide over 800 families with food, hygiene kits, baby items, and other essentials. The goal of our supportive services is to meet residents where they are to identify and break down barriers to success.
