Pass the Plate Challenge Fund
It’s happening in every single community in the country. Thousands of people have lost their jobs due to the pandemic, and for those people already living paycheck to paycheck, they now have to make the choice between food, bills or medicine. The people affected might be your co-workers, family, friends, and neighbors. But people in our communities like the elderly, the disabled and children are also affected as are the people that serve our communities. Covid19 doesn’t discriminate when it comes to who gets infected, but it also doesn’t discriminate as far as who gets affected economically even if they don’t contract the virus. We’re thankful our paychecks haven’t stopped. We’re thankful we still have a job. And we want to make sure our communities don’t go hungry. The Feeding America network is the largest hunger-relief organization in the United States including in times of disasters and national emergencies. All eligible donations made by VMware employees to this fund will be matched. Whether it’s a dollar, 5 dollars, 100, or a 1,000, please donate. Every bit helps, and a monetary donation or online fundraiser is one of the most efficient and effective ways to support your local food bank in a crisis situation. But don’t let it stop with you. Pass the plate and challenge your colleagues, family and friends to also join in donating by tagging them and challenging them and even having them record a video of themselves passing the plate. The most vulnerable people in our communities need us now more than ever, so let’s be EPIC, and do what we can to help. It’s your turn now! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SvN14uM_6Kw&feature=youtu.be

Providing Hope in Cincinnati During Uncertain Times Fund
Founded by James N. Gamble of Procter & Gamble in 1924, City Gospel Mission helps the homeless and hurting break the cycle of poverty and despair…one life at a time. They engage, equip and empower those in need with the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical skills and resources to achieve long-term life transformation and self-sufficiency. They don’t know how COVID-19 will impact the community in the coming weeks, but as public places close where the homeless hang out during the day, like libraries, parks and public facilities, they anticipate more people needing meals and services. City Gospel Mission will not close their doors and they will continue to serve some of the most vulnerable in our city and be there for anyone who needs them. Necessary safety precautions are causing an unplanned strain on their budget and resources, and they urgently need our help to fill the gap, and the people they serve will need our help right now and in the coming months more than ever. We have created this fund with the hope of raising at least $10,000 using our own donations and VMware match. This fund can also be shared externally so that anyone can contribute, but only VMware employee donations will be matched. You can also help by registering your Kroger Plus Card. Each time you use your Plus Card when purchasing groceries, Kroger makes a donation to City Gospel Mission to help feed the hungry in our community. All you have to do is register your card at www.kroger.com/communityrewards. You can find more information about City Gospel Mission at https://www.citygospelmission.org/ Please join us in supporting City Gospel Mission to help them achieve their purpose of breaking the cycle of poverty and despair…one life at a time.
