"Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world."

 

- Desmond Tutu

 

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. We appreciate your support!
