Here is a message from our National President which will have a major impact on the future for the clients we serve. Please share this information with anyone that you think will help support this bill.
SVDP Executive Director
Dear Vincentian Friends,
I’m writing today to ask that you telephone your two US Senators to move along a piece of legislation that is very important to those we serve. The House has already passed the FAMILIES FIRST CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE ACT. The Senate needs to pass it for it to become law.
The bill would strengthen the nutrition safety net, including SNAP, student meals, and senior nutrition programs, as well as enhance emergency leave and unemployment insurance for people who can’t work during this crisis.
Passing these measures could provide immediate help in our communities and could slow down the spread of the virus. We need action now.
Thank you for all you do to serve our friends in need,
